Jetway: Minimizing Costs on Inter-Datacenter Video Traffic

Free registration required

Executive Summary

It is typical for video streaming service providers (such as NetFlix) to rely on services from cloud providers (such as Amazon), in order to build a scalable video streaming platform with high availability. The trend is largely driven by the fact that cloud providers deploy a number of datacenters inter-connected by high-capacity links, spanning different geographical regions. Video traffic across datacenters, such as video replication and transit server-to-customer video serving, constitutes a large portion of a cloud provider's inter-datacenter traffic. Charged by ISPs, such inter-datacenter video traffic incurs substantial operational costs to a cloud provider.
