CDNs improve network performance and offer fast and reliable applications and services by distributing content to cache servers located close to users. The Web's growth has transformed communications and business services such that speed, accuracy, and availability of network-delivered content has become absolutely critical - both on their own terms and in terms of measuring Web performance. Proxy servers partially address the need for rapid content delivery by providing multiple clients with a… Expand
A Case for Peering of Content Delivery Networks
TLDR
This work presents a model for an open, scalable, and service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based system that helps to create open content and service delivery networks (CSDNs) that scale well and can share resources with other CSDNs through cooperation and coordination, thus overcoming the island CDN problem. Expand
Content Delivery and Management
TLDR
The Web has evolved in the last decade from a mean to distribute content with marginal interest to a major communication media, where critical content and services are delivered to the users, by an increased sophistication and complexity in delivered content. Expand
A Taxonomy and Survey of Content Delivery Networks
TLDR
A comprehensive taxonomy with a broad coverage of CDNs in terms of organizational structure, content distribution mechanisms, request redirection techniques, and performance measurement methodologies is provided. Expand
A Comparative Analysis of Content Delivery Network and Other Techniques for Web Content Delivery
TLDR
This paper gives an analytical and comparative look on various approaches to web content delivery, and compares CDN with other distributed systems such as grid, cloud and peer-to-peer computing. Expand

TLDR
This paper will indicate that Greedy algorithm is the best among all other heuristic approaches and it can be used in capacity constrained surrogate placement problem also. Expand
A Local Area Content Delivery Network with Web Prefetching
TLDR
The authors attempt to combine these three techniques namely; prefetching, caching and the CDN approach to further reduce the user perceived delay in accessing the web. Expand
Caching Techniques on CDN Simulated Frameworks
TLDR
Different approaches that enable Web caching in CDNs are investigated, taking proxy servers’ characteristics into account, taking cached content according to varying access patterns into account. Expand
Replication Based on Objects Load under a Content Distribution Network
TLDR
A novel technique to place the outsourced content to CDN’s servers, integrating both the latency and the load is developed, which can improve significantly the response time of requests while keeping the CDNs’ servers’ load at a very low level. Expand
An Architecture for Distributed Content Delivery Network
TLDR
Simulations have been carried out and the results show that the proposed architecture (with LB) can offer same or even better performance as that of commercial CDN. Expand
A Cooperative Model for Wide Area Content Delivery Applications
TLDR
It is shown that cache collaboration is in particular useful to users with high demands regarding both latency and consistency, and the benefit of cache cooperation in increasing hit ratios and thus reducing latency further. Expand

TLDR
This work develops several placement algorithms that use workload information, such as client latency and request rates, to make informed placement decisions, and evaluates the placement algorithms using both synthetic and real network topologies, as well as Web server traces. Expand
Content Services Network: The Architecture and Protocols
Content delivery networks (CDNs) can be viewed as application-specific overlay networks that make web caching an infrastructure service accessible to any content provider. As the Internet continuesExpand
On the use and performance of content distribution networks
TLDR
How CDNs are commonly used on the Web and a methodology to study how well they perform are defined and use of a DNS lookup in the critical path of a resource retrieval does not generally result in better server choices being made relative to client response time in either average or worst case situations. Expand
Globally Distributed Content Delivery
TLDR
The Akamai system has since evolved to distribute dynamically generated pages and even applications to the network's edge, providing customers with on-demand bandwidth and computing capacity and lets content providers' infrastructure requirements be reduced, and lets them deploy or expand services more quickly and easily. Expand
Dynamic Replica Placement for Scalable Content Delivery
TLDR
Simulation results show that the dissemination tree has close to the optimal number of replicas, good load distribution, small delay and bandwidth penalties for update multicast compared with the ideal case: static replica placement on IP multicast. Expand
The measured performance of content distribution networks
TLDR
It is argued that CDNs succeed not so much by choosing an ''optimal'' server as by avoiding notably bad servers, and that neither Akamai nor Digital Island can consistently pick the best server of those available. Expand
Enhancing the Web's Infrastructure: From Caching to Replication
TLDR
The data show that replication in particular helps to reduce overall bandwidth as well as user-perceived latency, and can also provide a more fault-tolerant and evenly balanced system. Expand
Web caching and content distribution: a view from the interior
TLDR
This paper shows how the Wolman model is applied to large-scale caching systems in which the interior nodes belong to third-party content distribution services and correlates the model's predictions of interior cache behavior with empirical observations from the root caches of the NLANR cache hierarchy.

TLDR
It is argued that the placement of web proxy is critical to the performance and the optimal placement policy of web proxies for a target web server in the Internet is investigated and this can be modeled a dynamic programming problem. Expand
Flash crowds and denial of service attacks: characterization and implications for CDNs and web sites
TLDR
An enhancement to CDNs is proposed that offers better protection to Web sites against flash events and trace-driven simulations are used to study the effect of the enhancement on CDNs and Web sites. Expand
