Distributed content delivery using load-aware network coordinates

  title={Distributed content delivery using load-aware network coordinates},

To scale to millions of Internet users with good performance, content delivery networks (CDNs) must balance requests between content servers while assigning clients to nearby servers. In this paper, we describe a new CDN design that associates synthetic load-aware coordinates with clients and content servers and uses them to direct content requests to cached content. This approach helps achieve good performance when request workloads and resource availability in the CDN are dynamic. A… CONTINUE READING
