    Use Cases Description

    Website acceleration

    Website acceleration suitable for all types of websites, such as web portals, ecommerce platforms, and UGC communities. CDN can cache and accelerate the delivery of static contents on your websites. To accelerate dynamic contents, use ECDN.

    What are static and dynamic contents?

    • Static content refers to content that stays the same when requested.
      Examples: .html, .css, and .js files, images, videos, software installation packages, APK files, and compressed files.
    • Dynamic content refers to content that varies when requested.
      Examples: APIs and .jsp, .asp, .php, .perl, and .cgi files.
    CDN provides powerful static content delivery capabilities, significantly speeding up page loading and offering a smooth and fast browsing experience for geographically dispersed end users. During service peaks when there are a large number of concurrent users, it can alleviate the pressure on origin servers to ensure stable and smooth access to services and webpages.

    Download acceleration

    Download acceleration is suitable for speeding up the download of various files such as game, app, and ROM installation packages

    Backed by a massive amount of reserved elastic bandwidth, CDN can sustain traffic surges and speed up the download of large files, ensuring service stability and providing an efficient download experience for all end users.

    Audio/Video acceleration

    Audio/video acceleration is suitable for different types of audio/video on-demand websites and applications such as audio/video apps, online audio/video platforms, and IPTV. With enhanced content delivery capabilities and supported by Tencent's profound experience in online video operation, Tencent Cloud CDN can effectively ensure smooth audio/video playback for all end users during peak hours with massive volumes of concurrent requests.

    ECDN

    ECDN is suitable for websites and applications with dynamic/static hybrid resources or a large number of dynamic resources, such as .asp, .jsp, .php, .cgi., and .perl files, APIs, and database interaction requests.

    By integrating static edge caching with dynamic origin-pull route optimization, intelligently scheduling requests to the optimal service nodes, automatically identifying static and dynamic resources, and utilizing Tencent's proprietary optimal route calculation algorithm and TCP optimization technology, ECDN, currently a standalone product, can provide end users with a high-performance and one-stop acceleration experience.

    SCDN

    SCDN By integrating static edge caching with dynamic origin-pull route optimization, intelligently scheduling requests to the optimal service nodes, automatically identifying static and dynamic resources, and utilizing Tencent's proprietary optimal route calculation algorithm and TCP optimization technology, ECDN, currently a standalone product, can provide end users with a high-performance and one-stop acceleration experience.
    SCDN is built upon CDN and you do not need to re-do DNS configuration. Network security protection can be quickly enabled for domain names accelerated by CDN.
