Exclusive: This company has the perfect cure for streaming video

A traditional network architecture relies upon content delivery networks (CDNs) such as Akamai Technologies, Level 3 Communications, and Amazon Web Services. Netflix has built its own unique one just to server up all of those episodes of Stranger Things and House of Cards. CDNs rely on actual servers nearish to the end user (they call them edge servers.) There are many in North America, and tons in Western Europe, but in India, Malaysia, Thailand, and so on, they aren’t as many – and it takes a year or so to build a datacenter in a foreign country. With peer-to-peer, everyone watching a video suddenly becomes a server. – Jeremy Kaplan, Digital Trends http://ift.tt/2db3GiQ
