CDN stands for Content Delivery Network.
The use of dedicated servers helps display and deliver images and files, without latency; because they minimize the physical distance between the user and the content of the website.
With a CDN that delivers content from a server nearer to the visitor, the demand on the website's main server is decreased, and response times reduced; so that the website becomes faster and more user-friendly.
A fast website is important - from many aspects. Google prioritizes fast websites in its search results, visitors don’t tire, and the site doesn’t crash during traffic peaks. Everything lends itself to a more profitable website!
1. Faster page load times
2. Faster website
3. Better search engine optimization
4. Parallel downloads
5. Increased total bandwidth
6. Reduced risk of server crash
Storm Commerce stores static data - such as images and files - on the Microsoft Azure CDN. Of course, as a client, you can use your own CDN; if you wish.
