Netflix turns up Open Connect CD

Michelle Clancy RapidTVNews | 06-06-2012


Netflix is globally delivering nearly one billion hours per month of movies and TV shows via the Web, accounting for petabytes petabytes of data traffic. The company has been using commercial content delivery networks (CDNs), but now has built its own.

Open Connect is a single-purpose Netflix CDN, which it plans to transition its traffic onto from such established parters as Level 3. About 5% of Netflix data is already being served by Open Connect.

"The world's other major Internet video provider, YouTube, has long had its own content delivery network," said Ken Florance, vice president of content delivery at Netflix, in the company blog. "Given our size and growth, it now makes economic sense for Netflix to have one as well. We'll continue to work with our commercial CDN partners for the next few years, but eventually most of our data will be served by Open Connect."

Like commercial CDNs, Open Connect will provide the Netflix data at no cost to the locations the ISP desires, or ISPs can choose to get the Netflix data at common Internet exchanges.

"As part of Open Connect, we are also sharing our hardware design and the open source software components of the server," Florance added. "These cost-efficient designs are suitable for any high-volume provider of large media files. We welcome commentary and improvements, which will be shared with the community with the goal of a faster, less expensive Internet for all."
