Concept content delivery network (CDN) system and load balancing mechanisms were considered in this paper. The main task of the CND network — providing the qualitative information delivery to the end user. Content Delivery Network (CDN) — is a geographically distributed network, that contains a number of content servers and routers. As a rule, it consists of a main node (Origin), and caching nodes (Edges) — points of presence, which can be located in various parts of the world. All content are stored and updated on the Origin server.
