Cloud CDN

Fast, reliable web and video content delivery with global scale and reach.
  • Brings consistently great web and video experiences to users anywhere
  • Provides privacy and data security
  • Activates with a single click for Cloud Load Balancing users

Key features

Global distribution with anycast IP

With edge caches peered with nearly every major end-user ISP globally, Cloud CDN offers connectivity to more users everywhere. Thanks to anycast architecture, your site gets a single global IP address, combining consistent performance worldwide with easy management.

Optimized for last-mile performance

As a complement to Google Cloud’s high-performance private network, 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.

Integrated with Google Cloud

Cloud CDN is tightly integrated with Cloud Monitoring and Cloud Logging, providing detailed latency metrics out of the box, as well as raw HTTP request logs for deeper visibility. Logs can be exported into Cloud Storage and/or BigQuery for further analysis with just a few clicks.

Use cases

use case
Using Cloud CDN with HTTP(S) load balancing

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.

Supports hybrid and multi-cloud architectures With custom origins, 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 As a complement to Google Cloud’s high-performance private network, 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.

Anycast IP Serve content globally from a single IP address, improving reliability by reducing the time needed to fail over, circumvent internet routing issues, and load balance traffic across our edge.
Custom origins Serve content originating from Compute Engine VMs, Google Kubernetes Engine, and Cloud Storage buckets (or mix-and-match), or use Google’s global backbone to serve content hosted on-premises or in another cloud with support for external origins.
HTTPS (SSL) built-in TLS (SSL) certificates are included at no additional cost through our managed certificates service, mitigating the need to acquire or renew SSL certificates. You can also bring your own certificates at no extra cost.
Signed cookies and URLs Serve responses from our globally distributed caches, even when you need requests to be authorized on a per-user basis.
Invalidation Take down cached content in minutes with a flexible cache invalidation API.
Monitoring and logging Logs and metrics delivered in minutes with Cloud Monitoring and Cloud Logging, including the ability to export to on-premises, object storage, or BigQuery for detailed analysis.
Modern protocols Support for HTTP/2 and QUIC: the latest iterations of the HTTP standard. Both bring improved connection reliability and performance, especially for mobile devices and/or users in emerging markets.

Pricing

When Cloud CDN serves your content, you’re charged for bandwidth and HTTP/HTTPS requests. On cache hits, you pay for cache egress bandwidth. On cache misses, you additionally pay for cache fill bandwidth.

You’re also charged for any cache invalidations you initiate. Each invalidation can specify either a single path or a path prefix.
