MediaWise - Designing a Smart Media Cloud
The MediaWise project aims to expand the scope of existing media delivery systems with novel cloud, personalization and collaboration capabilities that can serve the needs of more users, communities, and businesses. The project develops a MediaWise Cloud platform that supports do-it-yourself creation, search, management, and consumption of multimedia content. The MediaWise Cloud supports pay-as-you-go models and elasticity that are similar to those offered by commercially available cloud services. However, unlike existing commercial CDN services providers such as Limelight Networks and Akamai the MediaWise Cloud require no ownerships of computing infrastructure and instead rely on the public Internet and public cloud services (e.g., commercial cloud storage to store its content).
