What's the best path, economically, for operators contemplating a CDN strategy? Build it, or rent capacity from a growing roster of third-party partner CDNs? This session will discuss how to think through the economic tradeoffs, both business and technical, associated with CDN planning and implementation. Attendees will learn how to cost out a CDN rollout, from two perspectives: Building it, or renting “space” with a third-party partner. Speakers will also discuss how to correlate peak demand with economic necessity, what “scale” means in dollars and cents, and how to factor in the economic impact on transport and data center costs.
