The exchange of digital media across content delivery networks (CDNs) has grown – and will continue to grow – at a rapid pace. Some estimates project a fourfold increase in digital content crossing CDNs by 2018. This mounting traffic puts tremendous stress on a global Internet infrastructure with latency and bandwidth issues. Maintaining system availability throughout the media asset flow is critical for all in the digital media and entertainment industry.
