Research and Markets: The Impact of Content Delivery Network on the Data Center Industry

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nchztl/the_impact_of) has announced the addition of the "The Impact of Content Delivery Network on the Data Center Industry" report to their offering.

The internet was not built for speed, nor was it designed to handle large transmissions of content over long distances. Content delivery networks (CDNs) were originally developed in the late 1990s to cope with the increasing amount of graphics on websites, to accelerate website performance and improve the quality of experience (QoE).

As broadband internet services became more widely available and able to deliver higher download speeds, demand for web content increased exponentially and the first-generation CDNs were unequal to the task. Now, the huge growth in video content, together with ubiquitous internet access on a wide array of devices and the availability of an increasingly sophisticated range of services, mean CDNs are a vital tool in delivering internet content to businesses and consumers globally.

Data centers (DCs) are a key component of a CDN, because the CDN point of presence (PoP) has to be housed in a physical location. The current trend is for CDN providers to colocate their caching servers with hosting providers as a way of expanding their geographical reach and ensuring sufficient capacity to meet surging demand for online content. Many CDN providers are also introducing an expanded range of value-added services, which include application and mobile acceleration services and content management.
