Application Delivery

Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) have become required functionality over the past
decades, not just for website acceleration but also for quick access to applications and
enhanced protection against exploits and denial of service attacks. But lots of things
can slow down application performance and data delivery: huge files, massive
numbers of IoT devices and the expectation of almost-instantaneous access. CDNs
become the cloud platforms for all application delivery and security needs, and CDN
vendors are required to expand their service suite beyond caching of static resources.
In order to reduce server load, cut website latency and ensure content
is served quickly and efficiently, CDNs should be aware of the applications they are
supporting, and smart enough to apply performance and security intelligence for
optimal overall performance, availability and security.
