CDN Performance Boost for CDN77 Thanks to Brotli
By Stephen Brown | | 0
CDN performance is amongst the most important factors that potential content delivery network customers must consider when searching for a CDN provider that adequately meets their needs. CDN performance refers to the speed at which the content delivery network can process, handle and deliver data to users all around the globe, and ranks alongside the global reach of a CDN as one of the most important CDN features.
As such, CDN providers are constantly looking to boost the CDN performance by developing or utilising innovative new features. These include high tech load balancing technologies, high speed hardware such as solid state hard drives and advanced compression techniques.
It is this final CDN performance technique – compression technologies – that the CDN provider CDN77 has pursued as they seek to boost their CDN performance. The UK-based CDN provider offers high quality CDN services and counts many high profile brands as its customers, including Victorinox, Wizz airlines, Scania, the European Space Agency and Foxit
CDN Performance Improvements with Brotli
Now, in an effort to boost their CDN performance, CDN77 are taking advantage of Google’s new Brotli library. This new library, developed by Google, promises to improve compression rates, boasting even better compression than Gzip. Chrome and Firefox are already implementing Brotli into their next releases, so it a logical step for CDN77 to allow users on compatible browser to take advantage of the technology.
