Azure CDN Endpoint Interactive Map

The Microsoft Azure CDN (Content Delivery Network) provides secure, reliable content delivery with a broad global reach along with rich features. The Azure CDN endpoints are not the same as the Azure Regions, and Microsoft has the list of cities for the CDN locations published in the Azure documentation. However, a list of city names isn’t very good at allowing you to visualize the true global reach of the Azure CDN.

To help better visualize the Azure CDN endpoint locations, I’ve put together the Microsoft Azure CDN Interactive Map that allows you to pan around and zoom in/out to more easily see where the Microsoft Azure CDN endpoints are located around the globe.

The Microsoft Azure CDN Interactive Map is Open Source and hosted on Github if you’re curious to see the source code behind it too!

Azure Region Interactive Map

The number of Microsoft Azure regions and data centers is greater than both Amazon and Google combined. Azure is huge cloud, but where exactly are the 30+ Azure regions located? Microsoft does publish updated static maps from time to time to give you a sense, however, nothing beats an interactive map where you can pan and zoom.

I’ve put together the Microsoft Azure Regions Interactive Map to provide a simple interactive map that allows you to pan around and zoom in/out to more easily see where the Microsoft Azure data centers are.

Interactive Azure Platform Big Picture

The Microsoft Azure cloud platform is really big with tons of features, plus Microsoft keeps adding more, and more, and more all the time. The technology industry can generally be difficult to keep up with, and all that is in Microsoft Azure can be just as difficult to keep track of. With the help of Ricardo Niepel and his Interactive Azure Platform Big Picture graphic / website it’s easy to see all the big features that make up Microsoft Azure. The interactive part is where you can click on a feature to see a short description, as well as links to documentation and pricing to dive in further.

The below image is a screenshot, clicking on it will bring you to the website. Enjoy!
