Content Delivery Network

    Today we started moving some of our image serving to a content delivery network.  The basic idea of a CDN is to store copies of unchanging or rarely changing files at data centers all around the globe, and then deliver the files from the nearest location to the viewer.  This should reduce how long it takes to load pages especially for those of you that are far from our primary data center on the west coast of the United States.

    For those of you that are overseas, I'm curious to know if you've noticed any difference.  Also, please let us know if you notice any new problems that seem like they may be related to this change.

    Gidday from Australia - I have had my download speed shaped for the last couple of days (Im out of quota for the month - it happens when you watch too much youtube!) I am actually very impressed with the optimisation of the way HP loads in FireFox  the images are a bit slow but they load last so it doesnt matter.  I don't notice any issues at normal ADSL speeds

    I live in New Zealand but have never experience any significant delays with HubPages loading. However if I see any speed increases I will let you know.

    Loading of text or images is fine even in India. Hubs having plenty of images take a little more time than hubs with few images but its fine.
