On-the-fly free image optimization with PUSHR

We are delighted to announce that PUSHR CDN now supports on-the-fly image transformation via a simple API for even faster delivery of your content on both mobile and desktop devices. Images can be resized, rotated, re-compressed to lower quality and sharpened right on our CDN edge to reduce your CDN zone's traffic usage and amplify the loading times of your apps and websites.

Image transformation is simple

Image CDN resize, rotate, adjust quality

With simple query parameters passed directly via the image URL, there is no need to create various image versions for all device types that visitors use to access your website. PUSHR will automatically do this for you on demand as soon as an image is requested in a new size. Once the image has been transformed, the result is cached on our edge network for maximum speed. 

It's completely free

There is no catch. At the time of this blog post PUSHR Image Transformation API is still considered experimental, but we do aim to keep it free and to expand its functionalities in the very near future, ideally without ever imposing any limits on its usage. 

It works with Push and Pull CDN zones

Image Transformation is available to both pull and push CDN zones, and will currently process jpg png gif and webp file types.

As a CDN company we consider performance and reliability of web sites as our top priority. These metrics have direct impact on your website's bounce rate and SEO rankings.

PUSHR's CDN API v2 is live!

After a month of testing we are happy to open up the second iteration of our API to all customers. It is stronger, faster and easier to use, and we're launching it with the basic content management functions first: file uploads to our push storage, uploads to your dedicated video transcoding nodes, content deletion and cache purge & prefetch. Zone statistics, full zone control and video workflow automation are all set to be launched by mid-November.

A new, faster PUSHR CDN website.

We've been receiving some criticism for some time regarding our website being slow which, let's be honest, is not a great self-advertising for a CDN service. PUSHR CDN does not advertise website acceleration at all among the services that we offer as that is not our specialty, and our website was not accelerated by our CDN. Since a redesign was due, we've decided to host the new website directly on our CDN network and see where this goes in terms of speed, especially compared to other CDN services that claim to specialise in website acceleration.
