Day today we all are used to so many apps and if we talk about Twitch and Reddit, these are the most famous app, and currently, it facing a massive outage problem. A glitch at Fastly, a public CDN provider, is considered to be the reason, according to a product manager at Financial Times. Fastly has confirmed it’s facing an outage on its status website. CDN is a highly classified platform of servers that helps reduce obstacles in loading web page content by reducing the physical distance between the server and the user. Without a CDN, content origin servers must reply to every single end-user request.
It is a key part of the infrastructure. Many companies run global networks of servers to improve the performance and availability of web services. CDNs act as proxy servers and cache some data as close to the end-user as possible. For instance, media content is usually cached to a CDN server near you so that it doesn’t have to be got on the original server every time a user loads a web page.
More apps that are facing the same problem like Spotify, Stack Overflow, GitHub, gov.Uk, Hulu, HBO Max, Quora, PayPal, Vimeo, Shopify, and news outlets CNN, The Guardian, The New York Times, BBC, and Financial Times are currently facing an outage. There are lots of people who use these kinds of apps when they faced this kind of problem then the user who doesn’t like to wait for something then gets irritated. And the main reason behind this is the CDN provider which’s why this kind of problem they facing. Lets we will see that how it will resolve because so many users are using these websites which is very important for knowledge. How they resolve the CDN problem which affect so many things.
