To maximize the performance and operational capabilities of Content Delivery Networks (CDN) in the delivery of audiovisual content, it is advisable to use Multi-CDN, i.e. two or more CDNs at the same time, as it is a much more efficient and cost-effective strategy in the long term.
Employing a Multi-CDN strategy offers three fundamental advantages:
- Reliability. By distributing the reliability of the network to different points, the risk of having a single point of failure is completely eliminated. Every company is vulnerable to errors or technological intrusions, so it is important to distribute the risk as much as possible.
- Costs. Multi-CDN strategies facilitate the selection of prices, locations and performance, allowing to choose the one that best suits each particular need, thus reducing costs.
- Performance. Because they offer more PoP and cover a much larger territorial area, performance improves exponentially.
