What is CDN (Content Delivery Network)?

CDN (Content Delivery Network) consists of a group of locations around the world (19 OVH points of presence), which redistribute your server content locally and cache files that don’t need to be updated regularly, using rules set by you.

When to use a CDN?


It will be most effective when you have a popular public website with some type of static content (images, scripts, CSS, etc.).

Benefits of using a CDN.

  • Your ROI (Return On Investment) can be very short from the moment you or your customers stream any contents internationally.
  • A CDN is a performance booster if a lot of content come from the CDN.
