Anycast for CDNs
Content delivery network (CDN) providers frequently use anycast to route traffic to their edge servers, providing their end users with fast performance and zero downtime. NetActuate currently partners with a number of CDN providers to provide low-latency, high availability anycast services.
CDN providers use anycast to route users at the network level to the closest available edge server. These edge servers provide users with services that include static content caching, reverse proxy, OTT for streaming media, and/or offloading SSL. NetActuate support clients who use a range of applications to provide these services, including Varnish (with support for VCL) and NGINX.
In the event one location needs to be taken offline for maintenance, upgrades, or even just crashes, users are seamlessly routed to the next, closest available location to ensure maximum availability and uptime.
