New CDN research notes
I have three new research notes out:
Determine Your Video Delivery Requirements. When I talk to clients, I often find that IT is trying to source a video delivery solution without having much of an idea of what the requirements actually are.

Toolkit: Determining Your Content Delivery Network Requirements. This toolkit consists of three Excel worksheets. The first gathers a handful of high-level requirements, in order to figure out what type of vendor you’re probably looking for. The second helps you estimate your volume and convert between the three typical measurements used (Mbps, MPVs, or GB delivered). The third is a pricing estimator and converter.
Purchasing Content Delivery Network Services. This is a practical guide to buying CDN services, targeted towards mid-sized and enterprise purchasers.
