Microsoft Power Pages – Content Delivery Network(CDN)


Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a distributed network of servers that can efficiently deliver web content to users. CDN’s store cached content on edge servers in point-of-presence (POP) locations that are close to end-users, to minimize latency. 

CDN will be stored and served from the CDN server closest to your location, static content like images, scripts, and style sheet files are used in designing portal websites.

NOTE:  You need to be a Portal Administrator to enable the CDN. This feature is available for the Power Apps Portal. If you’re using the Add-on license then you can’t enable CDN. Trial portals aren’t supported for CDN. You can’t enable the CDN for portals configured with a custom domain during the preview.
