Yes, a CDN furnishes super fast delivery of files across the globe. For clients that support web shops with customers shopping around the world (such as Scotch and Soda), this feature has proved to be crucial.
By using a Content Delivery Network (CDN), we can ensure lightning-fast loading times from anywhere in the world. This means that no matter where your users or visitors are located geographically, they will never have to wait for a page or media item to load.
The CDN will take care of distributing your media and store web versions on numerous servers around the world. The biggest advantage for you is that your visitors are automatically directed to the server of the nearest location. Technically speaking, this will lower the page latency and provide a lower load time.
Which CDN provider is Bynder using?
Bynder uses the CDN network of Amazon Web Services (AWS) called Cloudfront. Cloudfront has servers worldwide and is built for high availability (99.999 percent uptime). Cloudfront is aware if a zone isn’t responding and then it caches the images across multiple endpoints.
The maximum available bandwidth for both uploading and downloading with Amazon S3 is 100 Mbit/sec (~12MB). Due to the fact that we use elastic hosting (Amazon Web Services) and ‘autoscaling’, we can easily and instantly scale up our server capacity automatically.
