CDN is applicable to websites with a large volume of traffic, such as online streaming, games, social media, e-commerce, and file sharing sites.
CDN caches the content to a node that is in close proximity to the user in order to improve user experience. Therefore, CDN is suitable for use with large static resource access volumes, including HTML, JS, CSS, APL, MP3, FLV, JPG, GIF, MP4, and all other static resources.
When used in combination with other Alibaba Cloud products, CDN can optimize back-to-source speeds and acceleration performance.
It can work seamlessly with OSS to increase website access speeds and reduce OSS Internet traffic fees.
It can work with ECS to increase site availability, protect the origin site information on the server, and reduce bandwidth costs.
Note: CDN can use Server Load Balancer for origin site address back-to-source.
