Caspio FileStor CDN is a new feature released in Caspio 8.5. It is designed to help you significantly enhance the performance of applications with files and images, while also minimizing data transfer.
FileStor leverages Amazon CloudFront, the global Content Delivery Network (CDN) from Amazon Web Services. With the release of Caspio 8.5, you can now enable FileStor inside your Caspio account from the Files section under “All Assets”.
Once enabled, Caspio FileStor copies the files to Amazon Cloudfront’s network of “Edge” servers across the globe. Your applications will immediately start serving files from the CDN server that is closest to your end users for optimal speed and performance.
FileStor also helps you save on data transfer. Because the files are served through Amazon’s CDN, this usage is not applied to your account’s monthly data transfer allocation, therefore immediately reducing the data transfer for high-usage apps with files and images. However, it should be noted that FileStor should only be used for non-sensitive files and images, as the files will be copied to publicly-accessible servers.
