Edge cache servers

WordPress VIP Platform’s CDN is a global network of edge cache servers, each used to store and serve content closest to an end user.

The initial request for content to an edge cache server results in content being retrieved from the origin server; a static version of that content is then cached by Varnish at the edge. The cached version of the content is then served by the edge cache server located closest to the user making the request.

This enables the majority of a site’s traffic to be served directly from the edge cache server located closest to the user making the request, which provides low-latency and very high site performance.
