This software is well-suited when images are hosted on your own server, but it is less well suited when requiring the "full package" such as manipulations, hosting, uploader, etc.

Google Cloud CDN is available globally and supports various load balancers available in different regions around the globe, so I find Google Cloud CDN as one of the best choices for CDN as it serves globally and it is really fast, safe, and secure. It might be not suitable for you if you do not have any technical background.

  • The intelligent categorization and management of site content cache in Google Cloud CDN is unique and offers the best results with simple settings.
  • It has powerful servers in all geographical regions of the world and the speed of the site will increase many times for the customer with smart routing.
  • It has AnyCast IP feature and website receives a single global IP address. In this case, the site loads at the same speed worldwide.

Cons
Scaleflex
  • Pricing.
  • Intermittent Dashboard Issues.
  • Image resize traunches. So 100px windows of resizing rather than pixel-perfect rescaling to save on cache size/delivery volume.

We have a single contact point, but CI has been immaculate with their support offering. Instantaneous and comprehensive.

I didn't have the need to use support from Google when I was either testing or setting up my website. Information was easily found by searching online if I needed to, and the options that I needed to install or enable were there on the setup page. Honestly, I was a former systems administrator so most of this stuff is not challenging for me.

We chose Cloudimage for the value for money, and the ability to link with our own hosting.

We have limited software developers and don't have the need for a big cloud service provider along with their costs. Google Cloud CDN brings to usr, reliability and brand familiarity. Google Cloud CDN also doesn't bother us with pitches or 1000 emails about the products. We went and signed up for it, without dealing with a pushy salesperson.

  • Google Cloud CDN has worked great as a tool to provide more reliable and faster interactive web experiences such as with e-learning sites.
  • The product can require additional training costs, even for experienced IT administrators.
  • Overall, ongoing costs can also be prohibitive for organizations with smaller web presences.
