There is no reliable way to deliver a Web application (ERP, CRM, etc.) or a Web Site in China without having multiple points of presence (POP) to accelerate content delivery.
For Web sites hosted in China, congestion happens often, especially if https protocol is used. Sometimes, DNS resolution fails. This can prevent accessing in China a web site hosted abroad, even if this Web site is just a corporate ERP, CRM or source code repository.
Even if a Web site is hosted in China, other kinds of problems may happen:
- in some Chinese cities, congestion happens which makes the Web site very slow;
- DNS resolution fails sometimes.
All those problems are solved by the combination of Rapid.Space CDN and Rapid.Space SDN service.
This use case applies to Web Sites hosted on Rapid.Space but also to Web Sites hosted on conventional public clouds (Alicloud, AWS, etc.). Rapid.Space SDN can be installed on any server or virtual machine, including on premise or on any public cloud.
To use Rapid.Space CDN in China, a valid ICP is mandatory. Rapid.Space can help with the process to obtain a valid ICP as long as you have a legal representation in mainland China.
