CDNs & the Cloud – an exclusive report

AndyFryFor decades, Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) have provided the structural support for businesses across a range of sectors to engage with internet users around the world. As the richness, complexity and volume of digital content has grown, the likes of Akamai and Limelight Networks have enabled enterprises to maintain a consistency of delivery via global networks of servers and storage devices.

This report by Andy Fry examine the impact of the cloud on CDNs, covering topics including:

  • Is there a future for independent CDNs?
  • What are the advantages of combining CDNs & the Cloud?
