Netlify Application Delivery Network
A new type of global network custom designed for blazing fast sites and modern workflows.
Global by default. Multi-cloud by design.
A global platform with powerful features for managing code and assets.
Distributed just like a CDN, but with advanced functionality for publishing entire sites and applications. Automate builds to prerender content and deploy worldwide to every major cloud provider—including staging, rollbacks, and even A/B testing.
The benefits of an ADN
Faster sites & applications
Global distribution with automated prerendering makes for blazing fast site delivery. Smashing Magazine moved to Netlify for a 10x boost in performance.
Extremely reliable. Extremely secure.
Publish apps across seven cloud providers with twin DNS infrastructure (both AWS and Google). And since apps are prerendered, all edge nodes serve secure, static content with little opportunity for exploit.
Connect to Git for instant continuous delivery. Pull requests can generate automatic previews and every branch can be a different staging site. Every deployment is preserved allowing instant rollbacks to any prior state, without rebuilding.
Zero infrastructure required
Deploy direct to Netlify's Application Delivery Network to replace production servers, staging servers, deployment systems, and CDN caching.

The technology behind Netlify's ADN
Develop modularly. Deploy collectively
Netlify supports atomic deployment of your sites and apps, allowing you to push sets of changes to frontend code and backend functions together, as a unit, without even requiring a maintenance window.
Atomic deploys. Instant cache invalidation.
Cache control on most CDNs is tricky business. On Netlify, every global deploy is an atomic unit representing a state in time of your application. Worldwide caches are updated instantly, supporting richer applications than possible on a CDN. Deploy thousands of times daily without any risk of partial deploys or stale assets.
Global edge nodes all have built-in intelligence to natively serve A/B tests, phased rollouts, or geographic variations. Advance DNS management and network rules support user authentication, per-page routing, and even proxying to multiple legacy applications—all on the same domain.
