Integrating a CDN with Acquia Cloud

Integrating a CDN with Acquia Cloud

Drupal provides a wide selection of caching solutions. One of the most effective is the use of a Content Delivery Network (CDN). CDNs can provide the best industry solution for app server price, performance, high availability and security. Chris Meyfarth, senior engineer at Akamai, will detail inherent issues on the Internet and will discuss different services such as: push, pull, post, DDOS, error handling, and how original server masking can help. Wim Leers, author of the CDN module, will present an overview of the available CDN options for integrating with Drupal, including technical evaluations of CDNs and asset serving versus full site serving. Alex Jarvis, a technical account manager, will discuss advanced configuration of Drupal CDN integration using Akamai.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • When to use the CDN module or write custom CDN code
  • How to evaluate the technical properties of a CDN
  • How a CDN can provide security and high availability
  • How Acquia Cloud can be configured with CDNs in multiple configurations
  • About Akamai's test tool for assessing website performance
