Control Your Content Delivery
Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) are designed and built to optimally deliver different kinds of content to end users around the world. But traditional CDNs lack the flexibility to apply real-time traffic management policies dictated by the business and operational needs of the content owners.
CDNetworks offers a cloud load balancer service that provides you the flexibility to manage your content delivery strategy. It allows you to specify content delivery policies based on real-time conditions and user targets. This empowers you to react to market-specific conditions while never compromising on availability, application performance and operational efficiency.
Apply Traffic Management Policies in Real Time
Our DNS cloud load balancer is underpinned by a policy-based engine that allows you to specify business and technical rules for your content delivery. The rules are applied in real time and determine the content delivery strategy to be applied to users. Typical rules include using a single CDN, using multiple CDNs, or combining CDNs, Clouds origin servers. For instance, one rule could specify that all US-based users be served from your origin server while everyone else is directed to CDNetworks CDN. Another rule could specify that 60% of your traffic is sent to one cloud provider while 40% is sent to another cloud provider. Yet another rule could specify that all dynamic traffic and traffic to all users in China is handled by CDNetworks.
