20 Most Promising Content Delivery Network Solution Providers 2016

Content delivery, over the last few years, has changed dramatically with the increasing influence of internet, cloud, and mobile technologies. At the center of this revolution stands Content Delivery Network (CDN) that deliver cached static content web pages and other web content to their end-users through a network of servers. CDN allows the requested content to be channelized from the nearest points of presence (POP) and back, instead of having to travel all the way from the website’s origin server and back.

Today, the volume of traffic served by CDN accounts for more than half of all internet consumers’ traffic. It is vital for boosting the speed and performance of the website by reducing stress of static content on the original server. This will open business to all corners of the world by eliminating any latency issues that may be interrupting long-distance online transactions and affecting sales.

With billions of connected devices across the globe, choosing the best CDN partner is critical for organizations that are looking to deliver compelling online experiences.
