What is a Content Delivery Network and how does it work?
A Content Delivery Network is a network of servers in multiple datacenter locations around the world that delivers web content to the end user. The content is served to the user based on their geographic locality and the closest CDN server to them. The closer the server is to the end user, the faster the web content is loaded. This makes a CDN very effective at delivering content for high availability and high traffic websites with global reach, while bringing load times down for the end user. Additionally, since they are geographically dispersed, CDNs provide a layer of protection from surges in traffic since not all traffic will be hitting the same server.
Each server in the network copies the web content from the origin website. The content is then synchronized around the different datacenter locations. When a user makes a request to view web content that is part of a CDN, the origin server will redirect the request to a CDN server that is closest to the end user and deliver the cached content. The CDN will stay up to date by synchronizing any content that has not been previously cached, and have it ready to deliver.
