How the CDN works in 5 steps:

  • You choose the content to be cached on the CDN
    You choose the content you want to be cached on the CDN - any type of static content can be added. You then deposit it in your storage space, before integrating the static addresses into your webpages to make use of the Cloud CDN.
  • Your users access your content everywhere in the world
    Requests are made to the DNS servers. With IP Anycast technology, the CDN redirects requests to the OVH CDN PoP closest to the user, with the shortest latency time.
  • Sending of files to the user and communication between the CDN
    The requested files have not yet been cached on this CDN PoP. The files/pages requested are either dynamic or outside of your content deposited in your Cloud Storage space. The CDN directs the request to your server so that it reroutes the requested content to the user.
  • The user returns, the site loads faster!
    When the visitor requests this page again, the nearest CDN point distributes the static content directly from its cache, thus optimising both the response time and the end-user experience.
  • And without CDN?
    Without using a CDN, a user request would have to travel a much greater distance to connect to your website. This reflects the actual distance between the user and the location at which your site is hosted, the loading time would only have been longer.
