The cloud CDN has been exploited as a cost-effective and elastic way for video streaming, where the content providers only pay for resources (e.g., bandwidth, storage, web service) that they use. As a server-client solution, the cost on the content providers, especially the bandwidth cost for delivering videos from the cloud to the users, is still high. To further mitigate the content distribution cost, it is promising to deploy the P2P streaming technology in conjunction with a cloud CDN, to construct a hybrid P2P-cloud CDN system.
