Content Delivery Network (CDN)

More power for websites

Sometimes it is not enough for websites simply to be online – they also need to offer an excellent user experience. This is especially the case when rich content, such as multimedia elements, is to be provided. Content delivery networks (CDN) give websites the performance they need for this. By copying the contents, a buffer is created between the actual website and the users. This method is used, for example, to offer websites hosted in Europe to customers in Asia or America while still ensuring high performance. In this case, the DNS does not direct users to the original website, but to buffered “images” of the website in the nodes of the CDN.

Content Delivery Network in the Open Telekom Cloud

The Open Telekom Cloud enables the use and cost-efficient booking of the CDN from Akamai. Websites in the Open Telekom Cloud can thus be easily connected to the CDN. In the Open Telekom Cloud, Akamai’s CDN offers a service called Cloud Connect, which combines two services: Perform and Protect.

The Perform service boosts the performance and availability of websites and applications. From a technical point of view, this reduces the latency and packet loss rate when transferring data. Akamai uses its global network of servers to bring content and applications closer to local users, wherever they may be.

The Protect service safeguards resources on the website from online attacks. Kona Site Defender is a web application firewall that detects any DDoS and direct-to-origin attacks and attacks on web applications at an early stage and takes countermeasures against them. The original website is thereby protected effectively. The order for Cloud Connect is integrated in the Open Telekom Cloud. Upon request, users can receive additional sales support for the Akamai offering.
