The CDN or Content Delivery Network refers to a system whereby content gets delivered faster to end-users from the nearest data center. CDN providers have data centers that are geographically distributed across the globe and when any user requests for content, this network detects the user location and then provides him with data from the data center that is closest to him to ensure that data delivery is fastest. When you have multiple data centers you can store your data across these geographically distributed data centers but the capital expenses are likely to be far higher than if you were to use a CDN. CDN providers will guarantee your site better performance and more scalability because you can get the content delivered as and when you need it. In multiple data centers, your request can get queued till a slot becomes free but with a content delivery network, you can access multiple domains fro content; so your site can send multiple requests for different resources to different domains at the same time. When your site is hosted in one country but you have users settled in another country, a CDN always works to your benefit because it can identify the closest data center and make sure the data gets delivered immediately.
