There’s some seriously interesting thoughts shared here for building out a multi-CDN strategy. Having had issues with how to best use and leverage a CDN to get the best performance benefits, I can see how having a multi-CDN implementation would allow us to choose the right CDN for a given region of the world, as well as a whole host of other options based on things like cost, performance, and of course redundancy for when things go wrong. Murphy’s law, right?
This summer, the 2018 World Cup set an all-time streaming record – tripling its own 2014 record – with over 22 Tbps measured by Akamai at peak, but the event wasn’t smooth sailing for everyone. In a highly competitive market, and in an age where streaming failures make headlines, redundancy and quality of experience have never been more crucial for content publishers.
