The files hosted in Office 365 CDN will be served from a specific region(where the tenant is hosted).
If this correct,

Thank you for the response.
Can we upload the aspx/html files in the sharepoint library and refer it using document library URL instead of Office 365 CDN URL?

Hi @Joseph Velliah,
you can absolutely reference aspx and html pages in the SharePoint context like typically with SharePoint, without CDN usage. This is like it has been for years and CDN does not change this.
I might be now missing some scenario details around what you'd like to achieve and if so, please provide some additional details. thx.

Hi @Vesa Juvonen,
We would like to know more about global assets required outside of SharePoint Online. An example would be image references being exposed through exchange emails from workflows. We struggled with these when they reside in SharePoint, but they work fine through Akamai.

there are no global assets which are required outside of SharePoint Online. If you keep your assets in normal SharePoint libraries, they are secured and require authentication. CDN capability does not change this in anyway, unless tenant administrator enables explicitly public CDN in that particular library, like explained in the blog post.
"This will redirect the user to a aspx page hosted in CDN" - CDN is just a tool to publish a web site closer to the user. You will still need to host the aspx file somewhere, like in Azure, where it will be processed using server side code, if it contains that. Office 365 CDN is for static assets, like mentioned within the blog post. You can use that to copy static assets to CDN, so that they are served faster for the end users - but dynamic files requiring server side execution (like aspx) are not supported.
