A Software Defined Content Delivery NetworkΒΆ

As mentioned in the global architecture, you can aggregate the data exposed by SIR. This aggregated data can tell you many things:

  • Which networks are connecting to yours at what times.
  • How much throughput they need.
  • From where you can deliver your content to those networks.

This aggregated data could be sent to hadoop to decide things like from which POP to serve your content to your users:


You could also add metrics from other sources. Metrics like:

  • Cost of each link.
  • Latency.
  • Load of each site.
  • Reliability.

Once all the data is in Hadoop you could try to analyze your global traffic pattern and metrics and redistribute users to:

  • Minimize transit costs.
  • Maximize capacity usage.
  • Improve user experience.
