Keynote Address

The Challenges of Delivering Content on the Internet

Authors
Tom Leighton
Akamai
 
Abstract
In this talk, we will give an overview of how content is distributed on the internet, with an emphasis on the approach being used by Akamai. We will describe some of the technical challenges involved in operating a network of thousands of content servers across multiple geographies on behalf of thousands of customers. The talk will be introductory in nature and should be accessable to a broad audience.
