Google Announces Google CDN for better Application Performance
Google has begun to offer a new content delivery network (CDN) service, called Google Cloud CDN. This new offering is targeted at those independent developers who need their applications to load faster.
Since this is an alpha release, the company is only accepting applications from certain individuals. The restriction is due to the fact that Google Cloud CDN has limited geographical availability at the moment. According to Google, “Google Cloud CDN (Content Delivery Network) uses Google’s globally distributed edge caches to cache HTTP(S) Load Balanced content close to your users. Caching content at the edges of Google’s network provides faster delivery of content to your users while reducing the load on your servers.”
