MICROSOFT AZURE Description

Microsoft’s cloud computing platform Microsoft Azure includes a CDN service in their offering. The platform was released in 2010, initially named Windows Azure and renamed to Microsoft Azure in 2014.

Azure is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution, and next to a CDN they offer storage solutions, data management, compute and networking. Their IaaS solution is similar to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Compute Engine (GCE). Just like Google, Azure offers free credit to first-time users of the platform to help them get started.

The Azure CDN service uses the networks of Akamai and Edgecast, though it is fully integrated with the cloud platform and offered under the Azure brand. Because the CDN service is offered as a part of the larger Azure IaaS ecosystem, it is easy-to-use for businesses who already use the platform. Other CDNs can be used in combination with Azure products as well, for example with their storage solution.

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.
