Here at Pressjitsu we had support for third-party CDN services from the very beginning, but during these past few months, we’ve been working hard on something more than just a CDN for our customers.
But we think that distance and latency is only half the problem. It’s still inefficient to transmit large files, even over a shorter distance, and this is why we’re launching a CDN with a built-in content optimization proxy:
Our initial tests have shown a 50% reduction of file sizes on average, without any loss in quality, and that’s pretty exciting! It’s also worth noting, that unlike many image optimization plugins for WordPress, our proxy performs all the hard work outside of the origin, which means there’s no additional load on your server, and your original files are never overwritten.
If you’re an existing Pressjitsu customer and would like to give our new CDN a try, please reach out to support. If you haven’t got an account yet, tell us about your project and we’ll be happy to sign you up.
