Dear friends,

there is an interesting proposal for a standard in 
Content Distribution Network Interconnection (CDNI).

It is currently developed as an Internet-Draft, and a mailing list has
been created for collaboration. See attached forwarded mail.

Probably more than most of us need (and can afford) with the little open
content delivery networks that we run. But for me, it's a very
interesting read nevertheless. The Internet-Draft has some good
references, among them a fantastic taxonomy and survey of commercial and
academic CDNs which I never saw before:

   Pathan, A., "A Taxonomy and Survey of Content Delivery Networks
   (http://www.gridbus.org/reports/CDN-Taxonomy.pdf)", 2007.

Happy New Year to you all. I wish you a good 2011.

attached mail follows:


A new mailing list has been created to discuss issues associated with the "Interconnection of Content  Delivery Networks (CDNs)".

In particular, we encourage discussion on that list about the "CDN Interconnection Problem Statement":

> delivery infrastructure for the end-to-end delivery of content from
> Content Service Providers (CSPs) to end users. This list is to discuss the
> proposed development of IETF standards to facilitate such CDN
> interconnection. These standards might include protocols for
> 1) exchange of metadata between CDNs,
> 2) exchange of transaction logs
> 3) exchange of monitoring information
> 4) exchange of policies & capabilities, and
> 5) content management/flushing
