Global “otaku economy” phenomenon has been created recently in response to the epidemic prevention; not only has the sales of home office and fitness equipment increased significantly, it also caused the trends of subscribing to online multimedia, gaming and online shopping, and this further drove the growth of demands for Content Delivery Network (CDN). According to the forecast of a report published by Deloitte & Touche in May this year, online streaming demands for videos and games will increase by 20% to 70%, and the global CDN market is expected to grow at a rate of 30% to 40% annually.
WHAT IS CONTENT DELIVERY NETWORK (CDN)?
The Content Delivery Network saves website contents temporarily on servers distributed all over the world so that when users want to access them, cached contents closest to them can be provided. Not only does this reduce the loading time of websites, it also reduces the amount of data provided by the main server, and therefore lowers the cost for bandwidth.
