We have a new Content Delivery Network

We are excited to announce today that we have recently migrated a significant content area of DeepKnowledge Library Services Platform to a new Content Delivery Network, Amazon CloudFront powered by Amazon S3 redundant cloud storage

Our goal is to always maintain focus on commitment to upkeep your access, response time and quality of service compliant with the highest levels and standards, and the primary benefit of this move is to achieve significantly faster responses for page load time, an important consideration is given that the majority of your end-users access through web or mobile web browsers.

Low-latency content delivery

Now, with over 150 regional presence points including 139 cache edge locations, content will be served from now on based on your end-user location from the nearest lower latency point. This enables us to achieve extremely fast loading time close to 200 milliseconds, as well as greater scalability so that you don’t have to worry about the high traffic time, you can be sure that your e-library portal will load exactly as fast as during low traffic times

For the complete list of CloudFront edge locations, please see

Security

All content is served exclusively from HTTPS endpoints using SSL/TLS encryption for increased security and maximum browser compatibility CloudFront CDN also improves security via dedicated web application firewalls and DDoS mitigation services in order to ensure that only authorized users have access to the content

Reliability

The way we have architected the Content Delivery is based on a fully redundant structure which enables multiple failover systems to automatically take over in the case of a single node failure. This ensures continuity of service delivery to your end-users from backup content sources at all times
