CDN servers are the key ingredient in an high performing content delivery network.

Because of this, many of the world’s most high profile companies with an internet presence leverage content delivery network providers with high performance CDN servers located around the world. Such provider include industry leaders like Akamai, Level 3 and Limelight Networks.
