Content Delivery Systems

According to a Cisco study, global Internet traffic will reach 1.6 zettabytes by 2018, and approximately half of it will be carried over content delivery networks (CDNs). In addition, 79% of all global consumer Internet traffic will be streaming video. This explosion in Internet traffic and video content will make it more challenging for content delivery systems providers to manage scale and satisfy service level agreements (SLAs) while deploying value-added services to end users.
