CloudEDGE CDN Overview
Content Delivery Networks (CDN) enhance a website’s performance and page load time by caching assets across multiple edge locations in the cloud. (The edge is the network location closest to where the user’s browser connects to Webscale.) These locations are geographically distributed for a quicker delivery of static assets and cacheable API content to users from the location that is closest to them.
The speed of cloud provider networks and their global CDN Points of Presence (PoPs) enable quick delivery of your assets no matter where your customers are. Since assets are easily available for your application, web pages load quickly. This promotes a positive user experience and high Core Web Vitals score.
With CloudEDGE CDN (also known as Webscale CDN), the CDN provider is incorporated into the delivery path of your application. By routing all traffic through the provider, Webscale can securely manage requests and responses for the application. As with the Webscale Site Cache feature where proxies selectively cache content, Webscale CDN can set caching policies for traffic that traverses the Webscale CDN cache.
If the Webscale CDN cache does not contain the requested assets or a request does not match the criteria of Webscale CDN caching policy, Webscale CDN sends it to origin for servicing.
Webscale CDN includes the following functionality.
- Advanced security
- High availability
- High performance
The improved performance and user experience is connected to higher Core Web Vitals rankings.
Webscale CloudEDGE is a distributed computing platform that simplifies the global delivery of web applications and services, securely executing code close to your customers at scale. This translates into responsive websites with healthy Core Web Vitals and a polished user experience.
