Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure for building, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers.
It provides both PaaS and IaaS services and supports multiple programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems. Microsoft Azure offers infrastructure services, modern application development solutions, insights from data, and identity and access management services.
The Microsoft Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN) offers developers a global solution for delivering high-bandwidth content that is hosted in Azure or any other location. Using the CDN, users can cache publicly available objects loaded from Azure blob storage, a web application, virtual machine, application folder, or other HTTP/HTTPS location. The CDN cache can be held at strategic locations to provide maximum bandwidth for delivering content to users.
The CDN is typically used for delivering static content such as images, style sheets, documents, files, client-side scripts, and HTML pages. The CDN can be used as a cache for serving dynamic content, such as a PDF report or graph based on specified inputs; if the same input values are provided by different users the result should be the same.
The major advantages of using the CDN are lower latency and faster delivery of content to users irrespective of their geographical location in relation to the datacenter where the application is hosted. Using the CDN should also help to reduce the load on application because it is relieved of the processing required to access and deliver the content. This reduction in load can help to increase the performance and scalability of the application, as well as minimizing hosting costs by reducing the processing resources required to achieve a specific level of performance and availability.
