Question

Should you use multiple spaces regions if using global CDN?

If I’m caching files on the global CDN for my users to download is there any reason to use multiple spaces for multiple regions?

Currently, I’m uploading the files to a space closest to where my users tell me they are located. If the CDN is global though, then I shouldn’t need to do this though, correct?

If I can upload the files to a space in a region with a direct connection to my droplets it would save me significant time transferring data into spaces.

For anyone who finds this, I think I’ve stumbled upon the answer to my question.

It appears the spaces in each region has points of presence the files will be copied to. So it is still important for you to upload files to a nearby region, so the closest pool of PoPs is serving them.
