We started using Azure CDN by a requirement that made the department eCommerce company. To use one of the platforms where we published our online stores we requested that the images were hosted on a dedicated server images to display them properly froma web.
For this reason we decided to use Azure CDN, to thereby have two advantages: having its own image storage service in the cloud plus all the benefits of a CDN network.
Having the images distributed according to the proximity of the user, the platform achieved a much higher performance, allowing our customers to access the images of our products much faster.
We can also offer e-commerce department third-party tools for Llos themselves could upload online photographs of our products.
With respect to the negative things I could name the complexity of implementation. While it was not a very difficult task is quite confusing process for the CDN platform is configured correctly. The steps are few but confused when implemented. It should improve slightly this.
One point that should be corrected is to provide tools for uploading and downloading of images from the blob of Azure CDN. The administration of the images has to be done with third party tools.
As I mentioned earlier, it was implemented in order to have a platform images distributed geographically efficient way for our e-commerce online stores. We managed to have a platform mounted within hours that largely met our expectations.
