Best Distributor Selection (BDS)
BDS determines the optimal cache for a given end-user (client) at a given point of time.
Real-time, dynamic information based on:
- The end-user’s location and their network proximity to each CDN node
- General state of the Internet, including outages, congestion, and peering problems
- The load characteristics of the CDN
Because these decisions must be made instantaneously, network and CDN state information is continuously collected and stored in high performance tables.
