I like how you wrote this article.
Regarding CDN, I've always wondered if it's really worth it for a lot of sites that are using it.
If you don't have heavy resources (videos. large-resolution images, etc), I don't think a user would notice that the site loaded 2 milliseconds faster.

True that, infact Netflix is handling all it's video content via CDN, and the rest of the stuff like handling billings, user logins, recommendation system etc is using AWS and Google cloud.
