CDN (Content Delivery Network) is a system that directs users who want to access a website to servers located geographically closest to them and enables them to receive service through these servers.
How Does a CDN Work?
Distribution of content via a single edge causes high network latency. When your clients are placed and want to access your content from different regions, they will face buffering issues. In addition, single edge delivery is not suitable for media delivery services because it does not support your failover scenario and it cannot be scaled due to using single edge. Don’t you think that what if your single edge is down or you start receiving unexpected traffic?
The CDN system fetches content from origin and caches by its own. CDN optimizes your origin content by powerful servers in different territories. Therefore, your actual network costs are cut and optimized. So, requests are automatically being forwarded to the nearest CDN edge. In this way, your users get the best user experience without suffering slow loading or high network latency
