Azure CDN

If you are looking for a secure, easy to manage, solution to store and distribute your content around the US and/or world, the Azure CDN may be the right solution. The only thing I would caution users on is that once your content is published and distributed it cannot be easily refreshed on the endpoints. Instead, you are at the mercy of the default time to live when the content was first uploaded.

Google Cloud CDN

Google Cloud CDN has helped us in all startup projects and heavy projects and has provided millions of simultaneous requests to users through proper management in a secure and SSL platform. Reducing costs and reducing server congestion have been done very smartly and accurately, and users of our sites can quickly access content from anywhere in the world.

As I said earlier, as we are already the Google Cloud Services user, Google Cloud CDN has some similarities in the UI and use cases, it's not so difficult to set up for us. Even after that there are 1000's of articles and blogs over the internet and Google documentation for most of the use cases and requirements.

Alternatives Considered

Azure CDN

Azure CDN is certainly the favorite when you're already working in Azure like us. CloudFront has programmability and should obviously be considered first if you're already on AWS. I've seen use of CloudFlare for one-off sites (EG, my friends who are WordPress people and are intimidated by Azure and AWS).

Google Cloud CDN

Google Cloud CDN works really well for a reliable CDN service, especially when used with other Google Services. It is highly reliable, efficient, and speedy. That said it can also be difficult to implement and lacks some support services found with other CDN services. It does not hold your hand by any stretch and organizations with experienced IT staff will find the best overall use from the service

Return on Investment

Azure CDN

  • The speed at which we could stand up the CDN and push content made this significantly faster than putting together our own file server and pointing a CDN URL to it. The ease of management, from a plethora of free tools, allowed me to quickly get users up to speed on both Windows and Mac based PC's.

Google Cloud CDN

  • It has certainly reduced costs and significantly reduced the loading of servers. It has always helped in times of high traffic.
  • Full integration with Google Cloud data storage also saves time and enhances change power.
  • Great for Streaming Video which increases the speed of playing live videos.
