Guys at ArtfulBits share our vision. This company provides custom software development and IT outsourcing services for its clients from the USA, Canada and Europe. The problem that the company faces is quite common.
Their server is located in Ukraine, where Internet providers cannot guarantee fast and reliable connections. Oleksandr Kucherenko (Chief Visionary Officer) says: “Our main sales territories are USA and Europe. And our ISPs and server are doing pretty well for European territory, but for USA we often have feedback about slow response from our web portal.”
This problem is solved simply and elegantly by using a CDN service:
- CDN acts like a huge external CACHE
- CDN operates a worldwide array of servers, which are much more powerful than the ones of an average company
- CDN servers have a much faster connection to the Internet
- CDN service is reliable. Even if one servers fails, the rest will take its load
Oleksandr comments: “The only thing that can force you to think about not using the CDN is the cost per 1GB of traffic. In our case we chose cdn77.com which provides affordable prices, allows to test their service during 14 days. And what is even more important to us – they have servers on ex-USSR territories.”
