Re: Image Optimization RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    People will be uploading thousands of images on my site. Will I need to use a premium image optimization plugin if I sign up for the Akamai CDN? Also, will I need to use the WP Rocket plugin to improve speed? Or will these things be taken care of by Azure's CDN?

  • Hi SSukdev,

    Could you elaborate more on what issues you are seeing?

    A CDN will not help with the upload of images, although it will significantly offload traffic for users viewing or downloading those images.

    Any WP image or cache plugins you add are not necessary, but would work in tandem with CDN caching. You may not need wordpress caching if you are offloading a majority of you traffic to Azure CDN. You will need to test this to know for sure.
