Azure Content Delivery Network—Media and Download Optimized Delivery

When delivering content to a large global audience, it's critical to ensure optimized delivery of video or web content. Media streaming is time sensitive in that packets arriving late on the client can cause a degraded viewing experience—for example, frequent buffering of video content.

This new capability is targeted to accelerate and optimize performance based on the scenarios you may use Content Delivery Network to deliver including general website or web application delivery, media streaming, file download, and more. Optimization will be applied by default to the scenario specified in the "optimized for" option when you create an endpoint.
