Being ready for anything is a tall order, particularly when it comes to managing the ebb and flow of global internet content delivery. Content delivery networks (CDNs) have long been the go-to for managing internet traffic, but as users demand seamless availability and speed in accessing content from all their devices, one single CDN provider is not always going to be able to guarantee best performance. Like a lot of these things, there are multiple considerations that go into best performance, like geography and the type of content being accessed. With a commercial, third-party CDN, many such key considerations are no longer in your hands.
The content delivery solution market is constantly evolving - in large part to provide CDN users more choice, flexibility and convenience in the way they deliver content, based on their own needs. Even the big players in the market are shifting toward greater agility and meeting users where they are to deliver content on their terms while newer players develop and launch exciting new content delivery solution options.
