In our previous post, we discussed how Content Delivery Network (CDN) can make your website load faster by reducing the distance between your end user and data server. However, this is not the only benefit CDN deployment gives to your website.

What is a CDN?

A CDN is a network or group of servers that are located in different parts of the world. These servers cache your static web content such as HTML pages, images and videos on a server located close to your your target users. This means your website loads quickly regardless of where your data center is located.

Who needs (and who doesn’t need) to go for a CDN?

If you have an ecommerce website with a large number of concurrent users, and target users in different regions around the world, then a CDN is highly recommended. The reason being that once your target audience expands, your server can only handle a limited number of requests. Also the more distant your data center is from your target audience, the more time will be required for data to reach them.

However, if you are a local business or your user base is confined to a limited region, you might not need to invest in CDN. Of course, you will be required to deploy other cache strategies to handle multiple users at once.

This infographic from Internap says it all about a CDN by highlighting fact, benefits, and end results.
