Content Delivery Networks (CDN) in Azure

  • A CDN is a distributed network of servers that can efficiently deliver web content to the users.
  • CDN’s store cached content on the edge servers in the POP (Point of Presence locations) that are closer to end users which minimizes latency
  • Azure CDN offers a global solution of rapidly delivering high bandwidth content to users by caching the content at strategically placed physical nodes across the world
