Delivering file-based content over the increasingly congested public internet is a challenge. Not only do you have to compete with more than 20 billion connected devices, but also with a growing number of users accessing, streaming and downloading a rapidly expanding universe of content.

The result is a growing congestion that can undermine your ability to get your software, game, patch or device update to your end users as quickly as possible. And every minute that your users spend trying to download your content is a minute they can’t spend using it.

The key to a high quality user experience lies in a reliable, efficient service that minimizes latency. There is more to latency than just internet congestion. Anything that gets in the way of a user accessing your software—the webpage or download portal, your publishing process—can undermine the download experience.

The key to tackling the latency challenge lies in the systems, infrastructure, and processes you use to make your download available. In order to provide your files as quickly and efficiently as possible, you need to optimize how you deliver them to ensure that the entire experience is fast, secure, and globally available.
