Content Delivery Network

15.6.1 New Points of Failure

The content delivery network system creates a new point of failure along the delivery chain. Any

content provider starts to depend heavily on the content delivery network service for content

delivery task. If a CDN service provider fails for some reason, the content provider also suffers.

15.6.2 Additional Content Management Task

follow the CDN service provider’s policy. Hence the content providers have to be careful about

this additional task.
