I have a site that currently is on a very expensive dedicated server. There are TB's of data stored. Essentially this is a website that grew massively pre-CDN days. Remember the days were you stored everything on your own server?
Here's my problem. I now wish to start using a CDN like MaxCDN.
My issue is how do you migrate this sort of situation?
Putting the files on a storage network like Amazon AWS would be fine.. but then you would have to replace maybe millions of links on your website to point to the file address. Obviously that is not practicable, if not impossible.
I feel like I'm missing part of the picture in this situation, any advice?
Essentially what do large sites do when they wish to start using a CDN?
When you go with Cloudflare you will have the ability to use or not use the CDN. The great thing here is you can see if your site has problems quickly. Make sure your QA team goes through your site to ensure you find any issues.
