Google Cloud CDN vs Zencoder: What are the differences?

Google Cloud CDN: Low-latency, low-cost content delivery using Google's global network. Google Cloud CDN leverages Google's globally distributed edge caches to accelerate content delivery for websites and applications served out of Google Compute Engine. Cloud CDN lowers network latency, offloads origins, and reduces serving costs. Once you've set up HTTP(S) Load Balancing, simply enable Cloud CDN with a single checkbox; Zencoder: Cloud-based video and audio encoding product suite. Zencoder downloads the video and converts it to as many formats as you need. Every output is encoded concurrently, with virtually no waiting—whether you do one or one hundred. Zencoder then uploads the resulting videos to a server, CDN, an S3 bucket, or wherever you dictate in your API call.

Google Cloud CDN belongs to "Content Delivery Network" category of the tech stack, while Zencoder can be primarily classified under "Media Transcoding".

Some of the features offered by Google Cloud CDN are:

  • Anycast
  • Invalidation
  • HTTP/2

On the other hand, Zencoder provides the following key features:

  • Fastest Encoding Speeds- Zencoder consistently delivers the fastest encoding times in the cloud. Even HD Quality video is encoded faster than realtime.
  • Easy API Integration- Integrate in an afternoon with Zencoder's well documented API, easy-to-use API Request Builder, integration libraries, and dedicated support.
  • Any Video. Any Device.- Zencoder has an industry leading 99.9% encoding success rate and supports outputs for nearly every device on the market.
