10 Excellent Free Open Source Projects To Create Your Own CDN

10 Excellent Free Open Source Projects To Create Your Own CDN | CDN Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

A content delivery network helps to host content such as images, media files, static content and style sheets of a large website by reproducing a copy of data through the various nodes of a network. Additionally, content delivery software helps to reduce load of websites and to improve downloading time of the websites. CDN is not just software; instead, it is a mix of hardware and software which helps to solve the problem of web content downloading and management using synchronization, logging, authentication and load balancing. 


As a software architect, I have personally preferred to pick a low cost CDN or to create my own CDN using open source tools along with freely available public CDNs just like for jQuery and other popular libraries.

Amazon Cloud Storage Clone Goes Open Source

Amazon Cloud Storage Clone Goes Open Source | CDN Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Amazon’s cloud services are a great thing. They give you instant access to computing power over the web, letting you instantly store data and run applications. But if you want to set up your own cloud service, Amazon can’t help you. You need software like Riak CS.

 

Riak CS is a file system for storing data, and it’s designed to be fully compatible with Amazon’s popular cloud storage service, S3. It can be used to create private Amazon-style storage systems in your own data center, to build public services that compete with Amazon, or to power web applications of your own creation. And as of Wednesday, it’s open source.

Nginx: This Russian Software Is Taking Over the Internet

Nginx: This Russian Software Is Taking Over the Internet | CDN Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

At a time when the world’s best-known web servers are losing marketshare, Nginx is growing, fueled by a no-frills philosophy and its knack for handling myriad web connections at the same time. Apache is still the king of all web servers, but use of Nginx has nearly doubled over the past two years, according to internet research outfit Netcraft.

 

It now runs about 15 percent of all websites, including everyone from startups such as CloudFlare and Parse (bought by Facebook earlier this year) to web giants such as Automattic and Netflix. “We use it for everything,” says Automattic’s Abrahamson. “We run as much of our software stack as possible on top of Nginx.”

 

In many ways, it’s an unlikely success story, but one that underscores the global power of open source software, software that anyone can use and modify — for free.
