CDNs continue to get cheaper
Dan Rayburn has posted his quarterly CDN pricing update. It’s always interesting reading for me, compared to what I see out of Gartner client contracts. I’m somewhat bemused that he finds 250 TB a month to be an “average” customer; the overwhelming majority of CDN customers are below the 100 TB mark, and customers are getting smaller and smaller as prices drop and minimum commits decline, and enterprises revamp their websites with rich media and exhibit often-irrational fears about hosting video themselves. I have an awful lot of enterprise clients doing below 2 TB of delivery. But certainly prices are dropping across the board, although it’s really only at the higher volumes that the price drops have been murderous.
