A CDN can enhance website performance, reduce latency, and improve user experience by caching and serving static and dynamic content efficiently. It can handle high traffic loads, mitigate network congestion, and provide faster delivery of multimedia content, resulting in improved customer satisfaction and engagement.
It serves also as a Disaster Recovery solution if your backend happens to go down for lack of resources, programming errors, maintenance, lack of electricity or hazardous weather conditions that interrupt the operation.
Based on infrastructure, software and operation provided by Planisys, it connects directly with +1000 provider networks and IXPs (FL-IX, NOTA, BT Latam, Globenet, GTT, NTT, HE, Cogent, etc.) and clouds such as Google, Amazon, Netflix, Microsoft, etc., guaranteeing secure delivery and effective content to the companies that it serves.
A WAF is a security solution designed to protect web applications from various cyber threats, such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and other malicious attacks. It helps identify and block malicious traffic, ensuring the integrity and availability of web applications and protecting sensitive data.
Planisys CDN-WAF provides a cloud-based , multi-tenant framework in front of your website to block Bad Actors, SqlInjection, FileInjection, ExploitPatterns, Bad referral sites, Hotlinking, and provide DDoS Protection with an IP reputation database,
If you need to purge content, having your content published in over 100 or 1000 POPs , turns the task into something impossible to perform in a reasonable period of time. Otherwise, it's only a matter of milliseconds until Planisys CDN signals its CDN workers to destroy intended content.
With a fixed set of IP addresses you are able to setup a firewall or even a Load Balancer in order to protect your origin site from external access, allowing that the CDN be the only place where you can access your origin site from, except in the case of backoffice where a VPN is the most recommended way.
If you know your fixed set of IP addresses, it's much easier to find latency problems your customers might be experiencing. Otherwise, it turns out almost impossible for your users to file a claim with their connectivity provider if the IP addresses are constantly changing.
With a fixed set of addresses, you as CDN customer can focus on monitoring services on those fixed IP addresses, otherwise you would have a "propagation lag" or grayzone for monitoring when IP addresses are changing
Using CNAME and DNS names at the top of the DNS zone, also called Apex, might be difficult with ever changing IP addresses. With Planisys PDNS you can configure an ALIAS which is a type of DNS Register to avoid overlapping of CNAMEs and give instant name resolution
With a small, never changing set of high-traffic IP addresses, you can monitor them and have the certainty that they are not being shared with others that could potentially damage your network reputation or exhaust your resources.
Shield of origin in dedicated IPv4 and IPv6 planisys origin organizations that can communicate with the origin of the application, also called upstream, for example. a server that has an application in AWS.
Organizations can add the DShield IP address to the list and block all other incoming connections on standard HTTP and HTTPS ports, such as 80 and 443, or any of the ports in the application. This can be achieved through access rules on the nginx or apache servers, firewall rules or a control panel provided by the hosting provider or IaaS.
Fine grained page rules permit HTTP header manipulation to override or improve CMS backend shortcoming.
Achieve PCI DSS Compliance, Owasp Web security and Anti-DDoS in a single dashboard
Optional SmartPhone and Tablet Auto-detection lets the CDN serve mobile content for non-responsive websites.
Through Panel tools you can operate over the CDN cache, purging and doing inspections by partial or complete content.
You can view and also manage your information in real time, unified Bandwidth and Transfer Reports. You can see a brief of all the site traffic or each IP Connections Online and Request per second.
Planisys CDN uses Google's brotli compression algorithm aside of gzip,that delivers a 20 to 25% better compression ratio compared to Gzip or Zopfli.
Planisys CDN already supports HTTP/2 and TLS v1.3 with zero roundtrip resumption to resume HTTPS sessions immediately and reduce latency drastically.
Strips unnecessary image metadata, and does JPEG Chroma Subsampling in favor of hue, with the result of up to 53% lighter images
