For the context of this article, we will focus on the elements of Baishan Cloud that are related to website performance enhancements.
Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) are the most traditional ways to facilitate the acceleration of the "delivery of static content". When you load a webpage, or watch a video, that file is first stored by the CDN, then distributed to a number of various servers in various locations. It then serves that file from a server closest to the end user, to reduce the time it takes to deliver that content.
These are typically used as one of the ways loading speed is improved for users in China by geographically caching content closer to the end users.
Yes! Baishan users get to utilize Baishan Cloud and Chinafy simultaneously, as they address different parts of the website optimization experience. Most users that leverage both services would use a combination of Chinafy plus Baishan Cloud’s CDN, and their security products.

Baishan users benefit from using Chinafy because Chinafy addresses code-based incompatibilities that CDNs and other cloud providers inherently do not touch. More on this below!
While a CDN might improve loading speed for static primary resources, it cannot address the code-based incompatibilities on your site.
Hundreds of resources are uniquely blocked or slow in China. As a result, if your site:
has Youtube or Vimeo videos,
Uses Google APIs
Uses certain plugins
Draws from certain resource libraries
& many more…
…those parts of your page still won't work.
Chinafy is the only China web compatibility solution able to intelligently identify, replace or remove those blocked resources for your visitors in China on an ongoing basis so that your site loads fast, and fully.
By tackling resource compatibility issues that interfere with how a site loads, Chinafy sites are 30%-40% faster than sites with near-China CDNs alone.
Enterprises using Chinafy can elect to “bring-your-own-CDN'', which can include use of Baishan Cloud’s CDN in addition to their broad range of services.
By leveraging the strengths of each solution, businesses can optimize their websites for China and ensure a seamless user experience for Chinese consumers.
This ensures that third-party resources and functionality can be addressed with Chinafy, while primary resources can continue to leverage the Baishan Cloud network - be that global or onshore in China, depending on the business status of the company on hand. The performance difference is marginal between the offshore vs onshore set-up, so the approach will depend on a company’s preference.
While Chinafy and Baishan Cloud are both related to serving content for China visitors, enterprises use them together to achieve even better results.
