Every time users go online to browse websites, view streaming video, download documents, access photos or play online games, it’s very likely they’re using content delivery networks, or CDNs. A CDN is a network of servers that store content and deliver it quickly to users by loading it from a server closest to the user in order to speed up page load times and avoid global bottlenecks. Content delivery networks may also host application acceleration and web performance optimization technology that can further improve the speed of content delivery.
