Using a Content Delivery Network

  • Jonathan Bartlett


So far, the focus of our scalability efforts for our cloud application has been the serving of dynamic content (i.e., content pulled from database queries). However, for many sites, dynamic content is actually the smallest part of their system. In fact, on any web site, most of the requests are not even for your dynamic content, they are for your static content—your images, stylesheets, and JavaScript. Therefore, when looking at ways to scale your application in the cloud, it is important not to forget to also scale your static assets.
