The Trend in Multi-CDN to Meet Digital Demands

Increased adoption of CDN technology, and the trend towards multiple CDN deployments, reflects a fundamental change in how businesses are delivering goods and services. As of the end of Q3 of this year, 1,400 sites ranked in the Alexa 100K have more than one CDN deployed, which is a 6% increase from Q1 of this year (this growth is slightly less than overall CDN adoption growth in the A100K since Q1, which was 8%). Software firms in particular like CDNs to push software updates as close to end users as possible, especially as endpoint devices go mobile.

Media, Retail, Leisure, and Corporate Services all frequently rely on multiple CDNs to deliver static and rich dynamic content. Deploy content across multiple networks for high availability; optimize traffic to that content via cloud DNS; and use WPM tools to monitor performance and take corrective action when latency or downtime events occur.

Mobile marketing pretty much applies for every company nowadays. The growing number of BYOD (bring your own device) workplaces means that mobile apps can make their team more efficient and productive – in a way that’s also quite cost effective. Regardless of one’s current perspective on mobile marketing and the enterprise usage of the cloud, they’re both are here to stay, so it’s either get on the train or fall of the rails.
