  3. 3.   proinity GmbH  3 A Content Delivery Network (also known as Content Distribution Net- work) is a system of geographically distributed severs around the world. These server maintain copies of the content. The pri- mary benefits of a CDN are about speed and high-availability, but a CDN brings a whole range of other advantages. F irst of all a CDN will boost your website. Slow websites are a no-go these days. A CDN will significantly reduce the loading time. Content will always be served from the closest edge server available. An edge server closer to you will lower latency and the closer a server is the less bottle necks are along the way. So keep in mind that a CDN is not just about a few milliseconds latency improvement but also about much faster loading time. H igh-availability is another key compo- nent of a CDN. Traffic will always be routed to the nearest point of pres- ence (POP). If one POP is not available, all the requests are automatically routed to the next POP. A CDN will definitely improve your site availability. Since the core HTML is still com- ing from your server, availability can only be as good as it is for your server. A CDN doesn’t real- ly help if your (origin) server is frequently down since dynamic content is still coming from your server. W hat about the other aspects of a CDN? A single server offers you limited scalability. A CDN makes it easier for you to scale seamlessly. Your server only delivers the dynamic content (HTML and such) and all the static content will come from the CDN. A CDN will definitely bring performance improvement whether you run a small site or something on a larger scale. But speed is just one part of the equation, a CDN will bring a whole range of other advantages. INTRODUCTION Why should you use a Content Delivery Network (CDN)?
