08:40 - 09:30 Keynote: Bruce Maggs (Akamai)

A First Look at a Commercial Hybrid Content Delivery System

This talk describes a commercial hybrid content delivery service, Akamai's Download Manager (DLM). The DLM extends Akamai's fixed-infrastructure network of edge servers by employing peer-to-peer elements. The DLM currently includes tens of millions of peers in over 230 countries. Using a one-month trace from the production system, we study the characteristics of the peer population, the mobility of peers between different networks and locations, the pattern of download activity, and the performance of peer-assisted versus fixed-infrastructure downloads.

Joint work with Ming-Chen Zhao, Paarijat Aditya, Yin Lin, Andreas Harberlen, Peter Druschel, and William Wishon.
