What are the advantages of using CDN?

Standard Internet delivery sends content data over general Internet routes to the end-user’s location from the host server’s location. The problem with standard Internet delivery is that it doesn’t take into account the host server’s proximity to the end-user, or the possible network traffic jams between the two. CDN, however, moves the content from the host server to a node that is geographically closer to the end-user. By doing this, the potential congestion in the network and decreases latency are avoided. Also, CDN includes tools that provide more content management and delivery control.

Why should my company outsource the use of a CDN?
