- Reduced bandwidth consumption: CDNs reduce bandwidth consumption by caching content and serving it from a server closer to the user.
- Improved user experience: Faster load times and reduced bandwidth consumption lead to an improved user experience.
- Better scalability: CDNs provide better scalability by distributing traffic across multiple servers.
- Improved reliability: CDNs improve reliability by providing redundancy and failover mechanisms.
