HI All,

I host my DNN website on Azure WebApps. I want to move ALL my images and client-side assets to the Azure CDN service. This part is really easy – you can now point Azure CDN at a webapp and it will handle the synching of assets to the cloud CDN. The tricky part is now I have to change every single image across every single module to use the CDN URL instead.

It strikes me that there should be a build in option for this in DNN – instead of always defaulting to the core Portals directory when choosing files, there could be a URL prefix set at Site level. I could then put the Azure CDN address in there and all client side assets could be served up by the CDN instead of my webapp.

Has anyone used Azure CDN in this matter with DotNetNuke?  (and this is another good reason to host on Azure instead of a traditional hosting provider – you can use scalable cloud services ;)

I have created something like this:
1. All files are stored locally in DNN
2. When first request to file comes in for new or modified file, it is being put into into Azure queue to be copied over to new location. Copying is done once an hour by Azure web job.
3. When second requests comes in and file in question has been already copied to new location, browser is simply redirected into this new location

Good with this is that if I decided to stop using this other storage option, I can simply delete the entries from web.config that handle these and everything is served again from DNN own file structures.

This is implemented as a custom HttpHandler for selected file types.

If you think this scenario is something that would interest you, I can for sure open up this more. You can see this in action on my own site, link below.
