Microsoft Azure is an infrastructure and a cloud computing platform. Through a global network, Azure is created for building, deploying and managing applications and services. Azure supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks. Also provides Paas (Platform As A Service) and Iaas (Infrastructure As A Service) services. Azure CDN is used for high bandwidth content as it is one of the fast and modern global delivery network.
With the help of the servers closest to the customers, Azure CDN can send dynamic and media centric web, audio/video content, applications, images and other files. Azure Content Delivery Network is highly scalable with lower latencies. Also it has massive storage and compute capacity. Azure offers robust security with improved performance and availability across the globe. Azure CDN results in better user experience by increasing speed.
When a user requests your content, by default, the content is served regardless of where the user made this request from. With Azure you can restrict access to your content by country.
With Azure CDN, you can improve file transfer speed and it also increases page load performance by compressing your files.
The analytics are prepared for last 18 months using reports: Bandwidth, Hits, Data Transferred, Cache Status, Cache Hit Ratio, IPv4/IPv6 Data Transferred.
With Virtual Machine, deploy a windows server or linux image in the cloud. Built-in software patching, network load balancing. Leverage the full power of SQL Server in the cloud.
Better performance and user experience for end users who are far from a content source, and are using applications where many 'internet trips' are required to load content
Azure has designed CDN for the dynamic web content. Azure CDN helps to achieve better user experience by delivering high quality and speed.
Offloading of the origin is done by sending less traffic and also by distributing user requests and serving content from global edge POPs.
