As the sysadmin in our organization I've been asked to look into CDN solutions as we have plans to roll out a web platform that is targeted at developing countries. Here is my research so far on the subject.
-easy to get going (just pay, setup some DNS entries and you're good to go)
-have to rely on features/service provided by CDN which is unlikely to meet your special demands if your are a small organization like ours.
amazon and others which provide you with APIs and clouds in various locations which allow you to provide a CDN-like service.
-more flexible than aforementioned CDNs
-more work required to get going
-you have full control over the infrastructure and can implement a solution that really fits your needs
-requires massive investments
If you have knowledge about CDNs, can you share your experience with a PROS/CONS approach? Do you happen do know CDN solutions that perform well in developing countries?
