You take care to create great media—high-res photos, informative videos, engaging audio, and helpful documents. But if you can’t deliver it to your visitors fast, they’ll abandon your site or application immediately. Using Cloud Files powered by the Akamai content delivery network (CDN) can speed up page loads, bringing you more page views, more sales conversions, and more loyal customers.
Hosting your media on Cloud Files lets you serve it from 213 Akamai CDN edge locations across the globe. That gives your media a better chance of staying available if an unexpected outage or DDoS attack strikes. Plus, hosting your media on Cloud Files frees up resources on your web server, improving its ability to deliver dynamic content and handle requests.
