  • Appfabric and CDN are not directly related. CDN will let you deliver your content (images, css and anything else) to your audience from a near located server and will cache content so a trip to server can be saved

    Appfabric is running at the core of azure services and is primarily taking care of resource allocation for azure services.

    so in a nutshell you dont need a separate CDN but you need to keep your existing one or if you dont have one and you want to use CDN then you should get one.

    hope this answers your question
