What is a Content Delivery Network?

A Content Delivery Network (or CDN) is a system of globally positioned edge servers.

These edge servers maintain cached copies of the content (such as images, CSS, JS), which is retrieved from the closest physical location. Since the data travels a shorter distance, this results in reduced latency and faster load times. Caching accounts for a major part of a CDN’s functionality. Subsequent visitor requests for static assets will be delivered from the edge server's cache, instead of the origin, thus reducing origin load and improving scalability. Other features such as Gzip compresses your assets, decreasing their size, before sending them to your visitors. CDN’s also can deliver HD video, 4K content, as well as a multitude of other files.

We have seen customers reduce their latency by over 70%.

Latency can be defined as the round-trip time from the browser to the server. When it comes serving up your content around the globe in a fast and efficient manner, website latency becomes very important. Content delivery over long distances with traditional fiber optics slows down as the cable, repeaters, and amplifiers introduce delays; as well as unnecessary ISP hops. You can never get past the fact that there is physical distance involved, which limits your speed. However, by implementing a content distribution network you can reduce latency and packet loss by ensuring your web assets are delivered from edge servers located closer to your visitors.

Benefits of a Content Delivery Network

The main goals of a CDN are about speed, scalability, security, and high-availability.

A CDN will bring performance improvements whether you run a small site or something on a larger scale. On average, 80% of a website consists of static resources. Therefore, when using a CDN, there is much less load on the origin server. Other advanced CDN features such as origin shield can reduce that load even more by adding an extra caching layer. You can also take advantage of faster speeds due to optimized HTTP/2 supported edge servers using a customized TCP stack and HPACK compression with Huffman encoding. We’ve performed tests to compare the latency with and without a CDN and saw (on average) a decrease in latency of 73%.


Speed

Speed is one of the most important benefits from implementing a content delivery network. Content is cached around the world. The shorter distances to users will not only reduce latency but also minimize packet loss.

Scalability

Offloading traffic to a content delivery will make it easier to manage traffic spikes and scale up or down within a short amount of time. This will result in less load on your server and help minimize any downtime.

Security

KeyCDN offers industry-leading encryption standards. We make it easy for you to setup and configure security settings. We also closely mitigate DDoS attacks in the background to help keep our users’ websites safe.

Reliability

Requests to your website are always routed to the nearest available location. If one server is not available, requests are automatically sent to the next available server. This creates automatic redundancy.

SEO

Google uses load time as a ranking factor. Using a content delivery network can help increase your rankings in SERPs by decreasing your bounce rates and also to index your image assets faster in Google image search.

Lower Costs

Lower costs further with advanced CDN features like origin shield, hotlink protection, and blocking bad bots. Most CDN solutions charge hundreds of dollars for origin shield. KeyCDN provides this for free.
