How Comcast Built An Open Source CDN

LogoTo optimize delivery of content to their customers, Comcast designed and deployed a large CDN based on open source tools and common off-the-shelf hardware. And on Monday May 20th, at the Content Delivery Summit in NYC, Jan van Doorn, Distinguished Engineer at Comcast, will present the challenges Comcast faced, the options they considered and discuss the good and bad of using open source technologies. Hear about Comcast’s real life experiences operating their CDN and how they handle support issues when using open source platforms.
