Akihabara News Now in CDN Beta Testing
Hi everyone, just to let you know that we are working on some major improvements on Akihabara News, and the WP ads we posted yesterday is among these improvements, by the way sorry if I did not have the time yet to reply to all of you… Anyway there will be some huge changes in the near future on Akiba and among them is a MAJOR improvements in the speed of the entire website are planned for the coming weeks…
Thanks to a generous company, since yesterday Akihabara News has been testing our future CDN implementation… What’s this all about? CDN stands for Content Delivery Nnetwork (Wikipedia: CDN).
Simply put, CDN provides the capacity to host files in different servers across the world to drastically speed things up things end users (picture below)… The Akihabara News server is in the USA, meaning that people in Asian and Europe will access files less rapidly than those in the US… But thanks to CDN, Akihabara News pictures are hosted in 15 countries with 15 servers, providing faster loading times to people around the world, also CDN improves caching, speeding things up even more.
Since yesterday all news, pictures, and reviews (soon) have been using CDN Technology. In the future EVERY picture on Akihabara News, NihonCar.com, Manualgear.com, etc, will utilize CDN Technology.
What do you think? Do you see any improvements in image loading time at Akihabara News?
