Re: [Bus. Ops] Hosting Akamai

I heard google/youtube does this as well.

Anyone have any experience with those?

If there's anything that pushes a lot of traffic on us, it's those two in top ranks.

EDIT- Same goes for Apple TV. But I don't see Apple playing nice with anyone.

I was not aware of Google providing these appliances. I'll contact them to see what I get.

Right now I'm working on a deal with Roku on reselling their devices for "iptv" until mine is up and running next year (working with another large IPTV backend provider to deploy mine) which is one of the main reasons I'd like to get the content as close to the customer as possible without maxing out any large links. This also comes with working against a large local cable company (Buckeye) but shouldn't become an issue since they just capped (with high overages) all customers across the board - both business and residential customers alike.

I have more netflix traffic out of my house in a month than your network does. Just a little perspective.

and again, my network is currently very small. A lot of my customers still use Cable, which I plan on trying to move them away from.

I understand that, but I think you are planning too far down the line. Being a former owner of a small WISP, I see where your mind is going but you may not need to be there just yet.

Google Global Cache, though I seem to remember they require you to have a certain amount of traffic to them first.

My planning is this way due to launching a large coverage area within a few weeks. With taking on a large cable company that throttles/does UBB I expect a HUGE amount of traffic that will be NF and Hulu. Especially when you have an average cable bill in this area of $90 for 70 channels.- off of their promotions that they refuse to give to current customers.

What I find when I Google that name is an appliance that is designed off IR. »www.globalcache.com/products/gc-100/models1/

No it's called Google Global Cache.

If you read my earlier post, huge was on the order of 4000+ concurrent customers for Netflix. That could mean more than 10 or 20 thousand total customers and thats being optimistic. I think you are light years off from even thinking about these sort of cache boxes.
