Traditionally most websites serve everything from one central server, as demonstrated in the image above.
If the website’s target visitors are only based in a small geographical region around the server, then this method might be all they need.
However, when targeting international users, and even visitors from the other side of the country, those users will start to encounter slower load times. This is due to the greater distance information has to travel from the server to international users computer.
In order to reduce load times, we have to reduce this distance. This is where CDNs or Content Delivery Networks come into play.
Ideally you want to have as many PoPs (points of presence) around the globe as possible, to allow users to load the site as fast as possible. This is where multi CDNs come in as seen below.
The MetaCDN Multi CDN combines a range of existing CDN providers into one large global network. The MetaCDN technology dynamically optimizes and unifies leading cloud and network infrastructure providers across the globe to rapidly, securely and reliably accelerate web content to users wherever they are in the world.
By combining multiple CDN providers into one network, you get access to their aggregate power and reach, with the peace of mind of automatic failover to redundant networks in each region.
