Drupal CDN - Content Delivery Network
A content delivery network or content distribution network (CDN) is a system of computers containing copies of data, placed at various points in a network so as to maximize bandwidth for access to the data from clients throughout the network.
A client accesses a copy of the data near to the client, as opposed to all clients accessing the same central server, so as to avoid bottleneck near that server.
CDNs can dynamically distribute assets to strategically placed redundant core, fallback and edge servers. CDNs can have automatic server availability sensing with instant user redirection. A CDN can offer 100% availability, even with large power, network or hardware outages.
It is Fast – Using a network of edge locations around the world, Amazon CloudFront caches copies of your content close to end users, lowering latency when they download or stream your objects. The service also gives you the high, sustained data transfer rates needed to deliver large popular objects to end users at scale.
It is Reliable – Amazon CloudFront is built using Amazon’s highly reliable infrastructure. The distributed nature of edge locations used by Amazon CloudFront automatically routes end users to the closest location as required by network conditions.
It is Global – Amazon CloudFront uses a global network of edge locations, located near your end users in the United States, Europe and Asia.
