"Direct-to-S3": High Performance Data Transport for AWS 

 

"Aspera’s patented fasp™ technology is a next-generation transport protocol that eliminates the latency and packet loss bottlenecks of traditional file transfer paradigms such as FTP, HTTP, NFS and CIFS. By enabling high performance fasp data transport to, from and between remote cloud infrastructures, Aspera On-Demand allows AWS users to fully realize the scalability, efficiency gains and cost savings offered by the EC2 and S3 platforms.

 

With Aspera On-Demand for AWS, users have the freedom to transfer files at their full bandwidth capacity – hundreds of times faster than conventional technologies – with the assurance that highly valuable content will be moved and stored reliably, in total security."

How to build your own CDN using BIND, GeoIP, Nginx, Varnish

How to build your own CDN using BIND, GeoIP, Nginx, Varnish | Scala & Cloud Playing | Scoop.it

In this article, we shall outline the steps required to build a private Content Delivery or Distribution Network (CDN) using a VPS with Varnish Cache and Nginx. The goal is to build a CDN using free, readily available software but most importantly spend the least amount of funds possible. To this end, all nodes participating in this network are going to be virtual machines (Xen, Virtuozzo, OpenVZ, etc).

 

Our global CDN can not only keep the latest copy of static files closer to our global visitors but can also cache the most used pages (dynamic or not) in memory on the edge nodes! This means less trips to the geographically distant and slower Dynamic Node (see below). This is similar to what Akamai and other well known firms do, only at a fraction of the cost. However, in this article, and to keep things simple, we will only be caching static files.
