Slower websites are proven to decrease conversions as busy shoppers lose patience and leave for the competition.

Cloud Image Optimization is Integrated with CDNetworks, so no engineering is required. Images can be stored locally in a customer’s data center or in CDNetworks’ Cloud Storage. Cloud Image Optimization works for any image heavy website including ecommerce, travel, consumer goods, fashion, luxury goods, and consumer apps.
