"Where do hosting issues end and delivery issues begin?
This white paper is the result of CDN Tech’s experience in content delivery and acceleration.
Created in 2004, the company merged in 2016 with the hosting service Ecritel, of which it had been a subsidiary for several years.
The first version of this white paper was published in 2014. Over the past years, demand for these services and the variety of offers have evolved considerably: the development of new technologies, demand for increased protection against attacks, the development of regional operators, etc. We therefore considered that an update was warranted.
The objective of this white paper is to provide a comprehensive and educational overview of current Internet performance, of the various CDN technologies and their benefits, of the particularities of the Internet and CDN for some trades and in certain geographical areas, and, finally, to provide businesses with a guide to choosing the CDN option best suited to their development strategy.
We hope that this white paper will help you to better target your own needs and clarify proper coordination between hosting and delivery services.
