Fast, reliable web and video content delivery with global scale and reach.
Global distribution with anycast IP
With edge caches peered with nearly every major end-user ISP globally. With anycast architecture, your site gets a single global IP address, providing consistent performance worldwide with easy management.
Supports hybrid and multicloud architecture
Cloud CDN enables customers to deliver content hosted on-premises or in another cloud over Google’s high-performance distributed edge caching infrastructure.
Optimized for last mile performance
Cloud CDN supports modern protocols originally developed at Google, like HTTP/2 and QUIC, to improve site performance for mobile users and/or users in emerging markets.

Best practices for content delivery
Best practices for optimizing and accelerating content delivery with Cloud CDN.
Cloud CDN works with HTTP(S) load balancing to deliver content to your users. The HTTP(S) load balancer provides the frontend IP addresses and ports that receive requests and the back ends that respond to the requests. You can also configure Cloud CDN for use with load balancing and GKE.
|Origin and backend support||Pull content from any HTTP-capable origin, including Compute Engine, Cloud Storage and Google Kubernetes Engine backends and origins outside of Google Cloud, such as storage buckets in other clouds.|
|Caching||Configure caching behavior by origin that allows you to have fine-grained control over cache keys, TTLs, and other caching features based on the content type being served.|
|Route matching and origin selection||Cloud CDN uses Cloud Load Balancing to provide comprehensive routing and configuration capabilities at each edge location.|
|Modern protocols||Protocols such as TLS version 1.3, QUIC, Global Anycast directly benefit the user experience by delivering render-blocking web content more quickly and reducing playback start time and rebuffering when serving video.|
|Logging and metrics||Understand how traffic is being served by Cloud CDN with Cloud Logging and Cloud Monitoring.|
|Security||Applications can use request protocols such as Managed SSL (TLS) certifications, customizable SSL policies, and Audit logging.|
|Content authentication||Signed requests let you serve responses from Google Cloud's globally distributed caches, even when you need requests to be authorized.|
