Multi-CDN services are an innovation that can offer companies with an online presence an excellent method for accelerating their data and creating an excellent end user experience for their customers.
Multi-CDN services differ from standard content delivery network services in that they allow CDN customers to leverage many different content delivery network providers. Content delivery networks operate by storing data across many different points of presence (PoPs) around the world. These PoPs are usually located in towns and cities that experience high levels of internet traffic and are the key element of a high performance CDN. When an end users requests a specific file that is hosted on a content delivery network, such as a video or large software package, they are directed to the PoP that is closest to them. The benefit of this is that it reduces download times compared to files that a centrally located on one server.
