A content delivery network or content distribution network (CDN) is a large distributed system of servers deployed in multiple data centers across the Internet. CDNs are made up of PoPs and edge servers. The goal of a CDN is to serve content to end-users with the highest availability and performance.
Without a CDN, content must be requested from your server which can be at great distance from your end-user.
With a CDN, edge servers distribute media content to users that are close to their geographic region. The connection is fast because it’s between Internet nodes that are close to each other. PoP, or point of presence, are the groups of CDN servers spread across the globe, creating a net that covers large distances. Edge servers, located at each PoP, cache the content received from your server to ensure the lowest latency achievable.
Scalability is another huge benefit for using CDN because it makes it easier to manage demand spikes and scale up or down within a short amount of time. This will result in less load on your server, cut down on cost, and minimize downtime.
Our CDN is one of the few designed specifically for Arab web broadcasters. Our PoP network is designed to provide Arab audiences anywhere in the world with the best live and on-demand viewing experience. This is why we have the highest concentration of PoPs in the GCC and Levant countries and our distributed system of edge servers around the world guarantees lowest latency available anywhere.
