CDN77 Description

In 2011, CDN provider CDN77 was founded with the aim of building a CDN that was ‘transparent, fast and flexible’ and to make it suitable for developers. It was originally built on top of OnApp but since the end of 2014, they operate their own infrastructure.

The provider is headquartered in the United Kingdom in London, and have another office in Prague, Czech Republic.

On-boarding with CDN77 is quick and easy and can be done autonomously via the website. They offer a 14-day free trial, no creditcard required.

Since March 2016, CDN77 has implemented Google’s Brotli compression, an effective compression algorithm for common assets like CSS files, HTML and Javascript. Brotli is said to better reduce data size compared to GZIP by up to 40%.

CDN77’s customer portfolio includes CentOS, Gentoo, phpMyAdmin, Hubble Space Telescope, European Space Agency, R2 Games, Gajin, Rambler.ru, Victorinox, Scania.
