softlayer reviewSoftLayer’s content delivery network (CDN) is a system of servers running advanced software for organizing, storing, and streaming website content to end-users. Rather than serving content directly from the host server to the end-user, the CDN moves content from the host server to a node that is geographically closer to the end-user. This minimizes the distance the data has to travel, avoiding network traffic jams and decreasing latency. SoftLayer’s CDN includes tools for improved management and control, helping with digital rights management and content monetization. In addition, it features the ease-of-use and high level of control for which SoftLayer is known.
