Considering today's more devastating threats (e.g. DDoS attacks), security CDN is indeed the way to go.

CDN is a must have tool for a website to load fast. I've heard about the MaxCDN but now I got a chance to understand the types of CDN through this precise comparison post.

Good to know that Akamai traditional CDN is best for huge traffic sites but I prefer to have Incapsula as it revealed that it is a cost-effective tool.

Thanks for sharing this great comparison post, Erik. I have learned new tech stuff through this post.

Every site owner really needs to consider using a CDN. It sounds really complicated, but apparently the implementation isn't too bad since it is in the cloud.

It's an interesting industry and certainly the future of the web... Serving content from one place is getting old and vulnerable... I had no idea we had so many major players there actually...

Most websites are now using CDN to improve the user experience of their websites. As the demand is increasing, there are many CDN companies are evolving.

A good comparison is mentioned here, these 3 seems to be good.
