content delivery network

Page loading speed is one of the most important parameters for users. Avoiding forced delays of “heavy” content is quite difficult. The best solution for web resources that work with gaming, multimedia, and streaming content is CDN global.

How Does CDN Work?

CDN (Content Delivery Network) is a geographically distributed network that quickly delivers content to Internet users. In addition to the main server that stores data, it includes CDN servers. They are located in different parts of the world, taking into account the location of users who need to ensure a minimum response time.

When using the G-Core Labs CDN, every user is redirected to the nearest caching server rather than waiting for a connection to the main server. Such a network structure and a reduction in the network route make it possible to deliver “heavy” content much faster.

Please note that CDN servers have nothing to do with file servers, which are used to store and download data. They are designed to be cached based on certain algorithms.

Features of CDN

CDN plays an important role in reducing page load time, which is especially true for international web resources with a large audience. Prompt content delivery helps prevent the churn of dissatisfied users and reduce financial losses.

CDN also reduces the load on the main server during peak hours and the likelihood of losing access to content when it falls. Users will continue to be informed throughout the duration of troubleshooting.

Where Is CDN Used?

CDN is very popular among web resources with a large audience from different regions. Such a network will ensure prompt delivery of content to every user, regardless of location, and make working with the site more convenient.

CDN will become useful for streaming services, gaming, and multimedia resources. Another area of use is mobile applications. Today, there are special Mobile CDNs focused on fast delivery of content to mobile devices.
