Azure CDN - Point of Presence (POP) configuration

Venu Gopal Ksheerasagaram 1 Reputation point

Hi All,

Good Morning.

Recently I started learning on Azure CDN and I ended up with few questions as below, please clarify the same:

  1. If my application is targeted for Europe region, is it possible for me to configure and limit POP for only European region ? Or This config will implicitly taken care by Azure ?
  2. The edgeserver (POP) region availability and dependency limits to parent service ? (For example Resource group region, App service plan region ? etc )
  3. Is it possible for us to find IP address of edgeserver from where webapp is cached ?

    1. It is possible to limit access to your CDN endpoints from some countries. If only European countries can access your endpoint, you will likely only be on Europe PoPs. It might be possible to use an Azure Traffic Manager in combination with one or more CDNs to produce the results you are looking for, while maintaining global availability.
    2. There is no availability or dependency to a resource group region, app service plan region, ect.
    3. If you have a CDN caching files on a web service, you should be able to use what the DNS returns to isolate the specific POP by DNS name or IP Address.
