    Hi Ryan,

    The derived assets requested during delivery are generated on-the-fly, stored persistently, cached, and delivered through a CDN. The time required for generating a transformation depends on various factors: original asset dimensions, asset file size, requested dimensions, applied effects, and specific transformations. Once generated for the first time on the first request of a visitor (i.e., first hit) - the transformed asset is henceforth cached and delivered through a fast CDN for all subsequent requests.

    Hope this helps.
