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
- Refer Here for the Azure CDN POP Locations
- Create a Storage Account with some content
- Create a Azure CDN Profile
- If we use storage as a backend and choose the CDN Provider the content is cached globally and latency is minimized
Azure File Share
- Azure Files can create file shares in the cloud. We can access the files using the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol.
- Create a new Resource Group and create a storage account (Standard General Purpose)
- Add a File Share
- Now create two VMs
- Linux VM
- Windows VM
