Re: [Bus. Ops] Hosting Akamai

said by TBBroadband:

The requirement is 8gigs per month according to the email they sent me (NF). The peering is different. And right now I'm not looking to peer with them, just bring content closer via their server appliance.

from NF:

brief summary of the Open Connect Appliance (OCA)

Each OCA is 4RU, and holds about 100TB of content
Each box can serve up to 8.5Gbps of Netflix traffic
Typical deployments are around 5+Gbps (per month)
In terms of steering subscribers to the box- you'll advertise the networks you want the system to serve over BGP (to the OCA). When someone from one of those networks goes to watch Netflix, our Master Control will direct it to the box in your network as the primary streaming server.

Yea as Jcremin suggested, the email states:

Each box can serve up to 8.5Gbps of Netflix traffic
Typical deployments are around 5+Gbps (per month)

Thats 8.5 Gigabits PER SECOND, and 5+ Gigabits PER SECOND.

Quick math shows that to reach 8.5 Gigabits per second, you would have to have somewhere around 4500 customers all watching at the same time with an average stream of just under 2 megabits per second.
