  • Are there any advantages of using CDN for more than caching?

    Yes, CDN can help with various types of content: caching static content like images, CSS, JS objects, accelerating dynamic, non-cacheable personalized transactions, streaming live and on-demand video content and even delivering telemetry or API-based traffic in high frequency of requests.

  • Can CDN help reduce my overall infrastructure cost?

    Yes, one of the main benefits of CDN is offloading your server infrastructure, whether in the Cloud or on-premises. Counterintuitively, in some use cases, adding CDN to the website might reduce the overall spend on infrastructure, as CDN uses optimizations in connection and protocol handling.

  • What type of security capabilities CDNs have to offer?

    In additions to the basic end-to-end HTTPS/TLS data encryption, CDNs offer multiple security capabilities: from Cloud/Edge-based DDoS protection and WAF through Bot Management to API and 3rd party client-side security.
