A Latency-Based Object Placement Approach in Content Distribution Networks
Content Distribution Networks (CDNs) are increasingly being used to disseminate data in today's Internet aiming at reducing the load on the origin server and the traffic on the Internet, and ultimately improving response time to users. In this direction, crucial data management issues should be addressed. A very important issue is the optimal placement of the outsourced content to CDN’s servers. All the approaches developed so far assume the existence of adequate popularity statistics. Such information though, is not always available, or it is extremely volatile, turning such methods problematic. This paper develops a network-adaptive, non-parameterized technique to place the outsourced content to CDN’s servers, which requires no a-priori knowledge of request statistics. We place the outsourced objects to these servers with respect to the network latency that each object produces. Through a detailed simulation environment, using both real and synthetic data, we show that the ...
