We started using Azure CDN when we developed a new version of our corporate website, which included an architectural cloud shift. The new PaaS-based architecture requested that the website images and documents be hosted on a dedicated CDN server.

As our cloud partner is Microsoft, we decided to use Azure CDN, and at the same time, try the Azure capabilities (including CDN) on a limited use case.

Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN) lets us reduce load times and It saves on managing and optimizing our websites bandwidth. Simple and user-friendly settings as well as personalization of resources. Our company is always launching new startups IT web based projects and we have to buy as many services as we need. That's why Azure helps us to buy and pay for server resources according to the project we have.

Great solution to deliver content of high bandwidth. Few departments within organization have used it to develop apps and websites which have been very beneficial for the whole organization. Deep integration with services provided by Azure. Very intuitive and develop friendly. Security is of utmost importance and is very well catered by Azure CDN.

Azure CDN is Microsoft's cloud content distribution network custom-built for Azure. It shines for its ability to distribute static data easily to thousands -- or millions -- of clients while reducing the load to your origin servers. Azure CDN, like other CDN options, also speeds up client query times, by increasing the likelihood that file requests can be served quickly from a resource already available in the region nearest the request.

Azure CDN backs global distribution of all client-side code (JavaScript & CSS) plus supporting assets (images) for LiveTiles. It accelerates load times for every product (originally clocked in as 3x faster than raw storage) and allows for an evergreen deployment model for our SharePoint add-in solutions that can only use client-side code.

Our Marketing and Communications department was the primary user of the Azure CDN. In a small capacity, our HR and Training departments used it to host materials distributed throughout the company. In all cases, the material hosted within the CDN was distributed throughout the entire US for consumption. The primary reason we went with a CDN, instead of just serving content from a single Azure VM working as a file server, is because it allowed content to be delivered to remote users more quickly.
