Next Generation Content Delivery Infrastructures

Book Description

In the midst of the current computing revolution, users demand ever-enhanced and reliable content delivery networks (CDNs) as a means to access the latest online video, news article, music, and or other information. These delivery networks have the potential to improve users' experiences and decrease network response time, while also allowing content providers to invest in a shared infrastructure at reduced cost. Next Generation Content Delivery Infrastructures delivers state-of-the-art research on current and future Internet-based content delivery networking topics, bringing to the forefront novel problems that demand investigation. This book opens up new perspectives in Internet technologies, raising new issues in the architecture, design, and implementation of existing CDNs.
