MaxCDN is a content delivery network (CDN) provider, based in Los Angeles, California. The company emphasizes reducing latency of rich-content delivery. MaxCDN maintains regional edge-servers where customer files are replicated in multiple locations around the world. Dynamic routing logic instructs the end-user's browser to display a copy of the MaxCDN customer's rich-content files, from the location in nearest proximity to the end-user.
MaxCDN is geared toward consumer and home office users, the result of the re-branding of HDDN and CloudCache product lines in December of 2013. In contrast, MaxCDN Enterprises (formerly NetDNA) is targeted towards enterprise customers.
MaxCDN actively supports Open-source software and is an Nginx funding partner supporting Google's SPDY (3.1) effort and hosts jQuery and BootstrapCDN on its network. According to Datanyze.com, in an aggregate list of the Alexa Internet top 1 million websites, MaxCDN is ranked fifth in CDN market-share (7.6%), with 4821 entities using MaxCDN technology which includes a control panel and Restful API.
