CDN
  Content Delivery Network is a system of wordwide distributed servers that deliver pages and other Web content to a user, based on the geographic locations of the user, the origin of the webpage and the content delivery server. This speeds up page delivery time (considerably) and minimises the energy consumed in delivering that page.
