    United States Patent Application 20120226649
    Kind Code A1
    Kovacs; Laszlo ;   et al. September 6, 2012
    Content delivery network (CDN) cold content handling

    A method of content delivery in a content delivery network (CDN), where the CDN is deployed, operated and managed by a content delivery network service provider (CDNSP). The CDN comprises a set of content servers and a domain name system (DNS). For a given content provider, a determination is first made whether the content provider has "cold content" delivery requirements by evaluating one or more factors that include: total content size, size of content objects expected to be served, uniqueness of content, total number of content objects, and a percentage of the total content size that is expected to account for a given percentage of traffic. Upon a determination that the content provider has cold content delivery requirements, a subset of the CDN content servers are configured to implement a set of one or handling rules for managing delivery of the cold content from the CDN content servers.

    I'm here. With the new court ruling, all the multi step Akamai patents are now safer from others trying to set up a cloud and network coping Akamai.
    If you will remember I tried to describe what Akamai was doing was building an Atmosphere in which all the clouds floated safely and securely. With this ruling this is much more likely to become a reality.
    Go ahead and laughter at the stupidity Dan

    What is interesting is that the court said patent law is law just like criminal law- this is something that will very much affect businesses.

    It was an interesting outcome. What I gathered was that the court ruled that who ever knowingly involved themselves in violating a patent just as the getaway driver in a robbery is guilty.if someone is killed in the robbery he faces murder charges just as if he pulled the trigger. It does not matter that the patent involved multiple steps. How it all pans out will be interesting. Akamai was the winner and Limelight is in a very tough spot, and not just for this patent.

    I totally agree- I hope Yahoo is smart enough to be poling their participants. If so this will quickly change. If not, please post where everyone migrates to.

    United States Patent 8,255,489
    Afergan ,   et al. August 28, 2012
    Method of data collection among participating content providers in a distributed network

    A content delivery network (CDN) service provider extends a content delivery network to gather information on atomically identifiable web clients (called "user agents") as such computer-implemented entities interact with the CDN across different domains being managed by the CDN service provider. In one embodiment, a set of machines, processes, programs, and data comprise a data system. The data system tracks user agents, preferably via cookies, although one or more passive techniques may be used. A user agent may be a cookie-able device having a cookie store. As the user agent navigates across sites, a CDN-specific unique identifier used by the system to correlate user agents is generated. Preferably, the unique identifier is stored as an encrypted cookie. The unique identifier represents one user agent (and, thus, one cookie-able device's store). The system tracks user agent behavior on and across customer sites that are served by the CDN, and these behaviors are classified into identifiable "segments" that may be used to create a profile. CDN customers use the data system to obtain information that characterizes the user agent.

    Kind Code A1
    Fletcher; Gregory ;   et al. August 23, 2012
    Reliable, high-throughput, high-performance transport and routing mechanism for arbitrary data flows

    The present invention leverages an existing content delivery network infrastructure to provide a system that enhances performance for any application that uses the Internet Protocol (IP) as its underlying transport mechanism. An overlay network comprises a set of edge nodes, intermediate nodes, and gateway nodes. This network provides optimized routing of IP packets. Internet application users can use the overlay to obtain improved performance during normal network conditions, to obtain or maintain good performance where normal default BGP routing would otherwise force the user over congested or poorly performing paths, or to enable the user to maintain communications to a target server application even during network outages.

    Swildens ,   et al. August 21, 2012
    Automatic migration of data via a distributed computer network

    A method and apparatus for the automatic migration of data via a distributed computer network allows a customer to select content files that are to be transferred to a group of edge servers. Origin sites store all of a customer's available content files. An edge server maintains a dynamic number of popular files in its memory for the customer. The files are ranked from most popular to least popular and when a file has been requested from an edge server a sufficient number of times to become more popular than the lowest popular stored file, the file is obtained from an origin site. The edge servers are grouped into two service levels: regional and global. The customer is charged a higher fee to store its popular files on the global edge servers compared to a regional set of edge servers because of greater coverage.

    This is a blog from the Akamai website. It is interesting.
    Please read the last few paragraphs- I wonder what that is about. I will try and find out and post!

    Akamai vs. Limelight

    We have seen ATT try to develop a CDN system and repeated been unable.
    This last time they made a big deal about developing their own - again the same result- nothing worth while.
    My money is with Akamai

  • tjh930066 by tjh930066 Aug 16, 2012 3:51 PM Flag

    When should the case be resolved?

    What will it do to each?

    Limelight has the most to lose. Including possibly the company.

    I say by the end of September.

    Will this enter into AT&T. Decision?

    I stand by my saying that Akamai is doing nothing nmore than commenting on the facts- They are being attacked. If Akamai was involved they would have no interruption of service. Akamai is not involved. They are not a client!

    You can check Akamais list of clients. Even more you can see what wilkileaks ldoes with their donations. Akamai is not listed as a way they spend their money.

  • tjh930066 tjh930066 Aug 15, 2012 6:51 PM Flag

    Of the 2 companies- which in your opinion has the most to offer AT&T.
    Which would help AT&T improve their business and customer service the most.
    We both know that Akamai has an extensive R&D component- could this benefit AT&T

    I am not asking you to guess,. My feeling is that other than a greatly discounted price by Limelight, Akamai has much more to offer.

    I have always been accused of having a character flaw. If I can I will get an official answer. I still am inclined to feel that Akamai is NOT helping them with their denial of service attacks issue. My guess actually is that they have helped develop the technology for the govt to make this attack so serious- just a guess. I do believe that some govt agency is involved- since they screwed with our agencies no reason our agencies can not screw with them. When it comes to revealing military secrets all bets are off.

    Akamai is not helping Wilileaks. They monitor attacks all over the Internet.
    The attacks continue with no help from Akamai- they are NOT a client of Akamais. You title is wrong and not of your usual character.

    Apple is a great customer for Akamai. They are a well run business with great leadership and research as is Akamai. It is great that they have formed such a wonderful partnership. .
    Apple as noted in Sec filings is less than 10 % of Akamais revenues.
