A CDN (content delivery network) is a geographically-distributed network of proxy servers intended to cache and serve resources such as images and video from closer to users, reducing latency and increasing performance.
A content delivery network can be a quick and effective solution for improving the scalability and availability of your web sites. By caching static assets on a geographically distributed network of optimized servers, you can greatly reduce page load times and latencies for end users. In addition, CDNs allow you to significantly reduce your bandwidth usage by absorbing user requests and responding from cache at the edge, thus lowering your bandwidth and infrastructure costs.
In this Solutions guide, we'll demonstrate how to offload your WordPress Media Library and other static assets to DigitalOcean Spaces, and deliver these to end users using the DigitalOcean Spaces CDN.
