CDN is a short form of the content delivery network.
CDN is a network of proxy servers distributed geographically and their data centers. It strives to provide high availability and high performance by distributing the service spatially relative to end-users.

A CDN (Content Delivery Network) is a widely distributed platform of servers that helps reduce the physical gap between the server and the user, resulting in faster loading of web page content. This allows users all over the world to access the same high-quality content without having to wait for it to load.

A content distribution network handles about half of the internet's traffic (CDN). The CDN's aim is to minimize latency by reducing the actual distance that the request needs to pass, the gap between uploading a request for a web page and the web page loading entirely on your computer.

CDNs store a cached version of the website material in different geographical locations around the globe, defined as "points of presence" to counteract this (PoPs). These PoPs will have their own caching servers and are responsible for distributing the content at the position of the customer.
