Everybody knows about Content Delivery Networks (CDN), but how do they really works for ASP.NET websites?
Does it solve the problems of legacy code? How many things should I change on my website in order to apply it?
What should I do if I have more than 1000 pages on my portal?
Any developer who works with ASP.NET portals should ask these questions. These issues,
of course, relates to us when we start thinking about applying CDN to our web site.
So we ended with more questions, and step by step we resolve them all.
Questions that we've got are:
Of course we are starting from analysis of CDN networks on the market and what they can offer to us.
Quick search on Google gives us list of the most popular CDNs. Few of them were well
recommended on stackoverflow, and none of them got a negative feedback. Quite strange, as there should
be at least several issues with CDNs, but everyonekeep silent on them.
Issue #1 that we've found is that nobody has complete description/article about how to apply
CDN on websites that are developed with ASP.NET. Regardless, whether we search for legacy ASP.NET Forms
or latest MVC - Google have not returned anything 100% relative.
