CDN performance

Faster means better

Our enterprise CDN leverages a more efficient, centralized distribution architecture that’s optimized for today’s internet. We’ve built a highly interconnected global network, featuring massive bandwidth capacity and advanced caching and acceleration strategies. We also embrace best-in-class, open-source technologies and fast-routing IP Anycast technology for powerful, lightning-fast performance that spans the globe.

The results speak for themselves: consistently faster, more reliable performance than traditional CDNs, as according to third-party performance tests for HTTP and HTTPS object delivery.

Our CDN network

We’ve built a better network that emphasizes efficiency in terms of interconnections and routing to lower latency, faster time to render and provide 100% uptime SLA.

Patented smart self-healing network

Our proprietary technology automates network failovers seamlessly and instantly. Edge servers perform self-diagnostics and execute self-healing without human intervention.

3,000+ global interconnections

We continue to aggressively interconnect with carriers and ISPs to expand our footprint globally to ensure that your content gets to your users with the least amount of latency possible.

Global Anycast-based routing

IP Anycast-based routing is a more efficient, more accurate way of locating users and delivering content from the best edge server to ensure optimal user experience.

Fastest-growing capacity

We’ve invested hundreds of millions of dollars to grow our network by 1,025% in the last four years.

The Super PoP architecture

Our Super PoP architecture is designed for today’s internet topology for better performance with superior server-to-delivery ratio and over 95% cache-hit ratio.

Centralized distribution topology

A topology that puts massive computing power and high-bandwidth capacity at centralized locations delivers more from cache within a smaller footprint to achieve best server-to-delivery ratio.

Horizontally scalable PoP architecture

Linear and horizontal scaling with edge cloud clusters and proprietary L7 load balancing allow for far greater scalability. Hundreds of servers become one giant computing infrastructure within a PoP.

Fault-tolerant design

Our proprietary technology, combined with centralized architecture, tolerates disk, server, rack or datacenter failure without user impact.

Read our blog post to learn how better architecture can provide better cache-hit ratio, better server-to-delivery ratio and better reliability.

Better technology

Our CDN is built to stay a generation ahead and delivers industry-leading performance at the edge.

12- to 18-month evolution cycles

We refresh our CDN every 12 to 18 months to incorporate new technologies and address emerging challenges. This enables our CDN to always remain next generation.

Patented proprietary caching algorithm

When combined with centralized architecture and Super PoPs, our patented algorithm achieves over 95% cache hit ratio.

Optimized for object delivery

Our CDN is designed with unique strategies for the delivery of static objects (video, large file, small objects) and dynamic content.

QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connections)

A next-generation protocol for faster, more secure communication between your users and your infrastructure.
