In the days of web 1.0, pushing content to the edge caches was enough. This is still a valid strategy for companies distributing large static files, but for the majority of modern web apps, content freshness is now every bit as important as delivery speed.
Dynamic content like liveblogs and automated data feeds is extremely time-sensitive and purge-dependent, yet frequent purging can tax standard content delivery networks (CDN) architectures and content distribution procedures. Real-time video streaming — particularly to mobile devices — can also tax a caching system designed to distribute traditional media files.
In this webinar, our panel will address these topics:
- How have dynamic and real-time content stressed content delivery networks (CDNs)?
- What are the benefits and limitations of dynamic site acceleration technologies?
- Is it time to rethink caching?
- How can enterprises and developers ensure the accurate delivery of dynamic and real-time content but still leverage the performance improvements of caching?
