26 04/2008Damien Buckley Shopify goes into warp with CDN

As regular readers and many of our e-commerce clients will know, Propeller are huge fans and approved developers for Shopify. Never resting on their laurels for long, Shopify’s developers, Jaded Pixel have just announced the turn-on of their Content Delivery Network or CDN to those in the tech fraternity.

“A content delivery network (CDN) is a collection of web servers distributed across multiple locations around the Planet to deliver content more efficiently to users. The server selected for delivering content to a specific user is based on proximity. For example, the server with the fewest network hops or the server with the quickest response time is chosen and will service the users requests.”

What will this mean to Shopify store owners / users in Australia and other locations outside of Shopify’s North American home? JP had this to say:

“This means that Shopify stores should come up almost instantaneously all around the globe. Quick response times have shown to increase the conversion rates in e-commerce and we are bringing this feature to all our subscribers at no additional cost.”

As far as we’re aware, Shopify is the only e-commerce system to employ this feature.
