A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a powerful system designed to improve website performance. The most obvious benefit of CDNs is that they solve the biggest problem caused by latency - that annoying wait time from the moment the user requests a web page, to the point when it's finally onscreen. Two main factors cause this delay.
Small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) are afforded a great deal more opportunity today than in years past. Cloud-based infrastructure and software offerings have provided smaller organizations the ability to leverage technology in ways previously limited to big enterprises. CDNs or Content Delivery Networks for SMBs highlight one such example.
The use of Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) has become more of a necessity today than ever before. When company website pages load quickly, and navigation is seamless, the user experience sharply increases. The obvious benefit is that your site will be more engaging for users and potential prospects. A second significant advantage is that Google and other search engines will reward your user-focused approach with favorable rankings - by contrast, sites with poor performance get penalized. Another virtue of CDNs is that they help shield websites from DDoS attacks.
