If you want to upload and store content directly on KeyCDN’s storage cluster then you’ll need to create a push zone. Unlike a pull zone, push zones don’t require the need for an origin server. Instead, you upload your data via FTP(S) or rsync to KeyCDN where it will be stored and pulled from the CDN’s edge servers.
If you’re using a KeyCDN push zone you also need to factor in storage charges. Storage is priced on a per GB basis down to $0.09/GB/month which is paid using KeyCDN credits. The per GB price also decreases based on the amount of storage volume you use. The table below shows an overview of the costs for push zone storage.
KeyCDN push zones are great for storing larger files since it helps offload storage space from your origin server. We recommend using a push zone instead of a pull zone for files that are over 10MB in size. There are also a couple of things to be aware of when using a push zone including:
- Push zones are limited to a total of 250,000 inodes (files and directories)
- Files sizes are limited to 5GB
