Use Google Apps for a free personal CDN:
So with some personal branding on a few websites it became apparent that my life would be much simpler if I had a personal CDN to store and share common files. After a little bit of research some CDN providers it became obvious that there are not many simple or FREE personal CDN solutions out there. So I googled “personal cdn” and the first link was magical! A simple posting by Brandon Brown explained how the Google App Engine can be used for your very own personal CDN. You can read his blog post but here I will describe the process I went through.
After following Brandon’s advice in the
app.yaml file I added a
img/ directory as well as and
.html if someone actually hits http://donbstringham-cdn.appspot.com/. So now the
configuration file looks like this:
It took me about one hour to setup and configure Google Apps as a personal CDN. So now I use this personal CDN for static content on a couple of personal websites as well as fonts and images for my various email signatures.
