 With the recent deployment of data-centers across the Internet, more and more services, such as content delivery, are being delivered from massively distributed infrastructures. This ecosystem is difficult to measure and track, and despite the importance of understanding its evolution, not much is known about it. In this talk, we’ll review the extent of the deployment of content delivery infrastructures in today’s Internet and discuss the implications on the evolution of the Internet infrastructure.
