Cloud computing Vs CDN ( Content Delivery Network ) - Difference

Many times we get asked from users what is the difference between Cloud computing and CDN?
Which one to choose ?

The big difference is that cloud computing is a big group of servers in 1 data center building which is usually at one location. On the other hand CDN is also group of servers but distributed around the country so it allows web visitors a better and faster access to the website. For example if you're in Boston trying to access a server in California it can be faster to be hitting a server locally in Boston for the files. The CDN is usually able to support much larger traffic volumes since the speed is calculated based on location the traffic comes from.

So which one to choose it really depends on your budget and the amount of traffic your website gets.
