CDN means Content Delivery Network, and it works by speeding up the delivery of your content, serving it from the closest location from your user.
If you install a regular CDN on your website, all your assets, images, videos, and files will be delivered faster and, in most cases, from the closest location from the user accessing your website.
CDN's are helpful to speed up the delivery but not very efficient when it comes to reducing file size. Neither can they incorporate advanced front-end techniques to improve your user experience.
Piio Images runs over a CDN
CDNs help content to be delivered faster to your users, and we do use a CDN to deliver the images once they are optimized. Piio Images currently uses the Amazon CloudFront CDN. It's amazingly reliable, and it has the best global coverage. It uses a worldwide network of 216 Points of Presence in 84 cities across 42 countries.
Piio Images is a JS Library
Being a JS library allows Piio Images to be easily integrated, you only need to have some minimum HTML knowledge to be able to install it. You can read more about how to integrate Piio at our Docs page.
Delivering your images through a CDN is one of our features, but is not the only one.
