Architecture for High-Performance Cloud-Native CDN
Date / Time: Tuesday, September 15, 2020, 10:00 a.m. New York/ 3:00 p.m. London
The demand for cloud-based content delivery networks (CDN) is growing fast in the 5G era, driven by the ever-increasing volume of media services and high-quality video content on the network. To minimize the distance this content travels over the Internet, communication service providers (CSPs) are widely deploying their CDNs at the edge - including central offices, regional data centers and other data centers.
To reduce the challenges of deploying and managing a complex network infrastructure, CSPs need a scalable, high-performance and cost-efficient CDN platform. This webinar examines the architecture for an optimized platform using cloud-native infrastructure for content delivery systems on the edge, the use of hardware and network acceleration technologies and best practices for automation and life cycle management.
