CDN Resources

A CDN resource is a host (e.g. a specific web server), the content of which you are going to distribute over the network of edge servers.



There are three types of CDN resources in the OnApp Control Panel:

  • HTTP CDN resource type supports both Push and Pull population.
  • VoD CDN resource type (Pull and Push types) allows using on demand video streaming service - uploading video and streaming to the end users.
  • Live Streaming CDN resource type allows broadcasting content using CDN.

Only servers added to the edge groups assigned to the resource will distribute/cache the host's content.  

To activate the CDN Resources menu, at least one CDN Edge Group with at least one edge server or marketplace location must be available.

 Apart from the CDN Resources permissions enabled, the following requirements must be met for the publisher to be able to create respective resources. If the requirements are not met,  the publisher will not be able to create the particular resource type:
