Pixboost is an Image CDN Cloud Service that resizes and optimises images to reduce file size and therefore improves load time.
The service works end-2-end and includes 2 main components:
- API - Collection of HTTP endpoints that optimising and transform images
- CDN - Content Delivery Network that stores optimised images in the closest to the user location
Once an image has been processed, it's cached on CDN, increasing the speed at which images can be retrieved on subsequent requests.
