Apple estrena nueva CDN

CDN-iTunes-iCloud-Apple
Finalmente Apple estrena una nueva CDN cerrando contratos con gran parte de los ISPs como Comcast y los proveedores externos como Akamai y Level 3. Creo que Apple armando su CDN con infraestructura de terceros muestra al fin un cambio en la empresa de Cupertino; lo que espero es que, aunque nunca va a dejar de usar estos servicios porque necesita distribuir contenido, siga avanzando y logre finalmente una estrategia de cloud services como la gente porque si en algo fallan es casualmente en algo donde Microsoft y Google están pisándoles la cabeza y es el único punto flojo de su ecosistema.

“Apple already controls the hardware, the OS (iOS/OS X) as well as the iTunes/App store platforms. Right now they control the entire customer experience, except for the way content is delivered to their devices, and they are quickly working to change that. While Apple doesn’t own the last mile, paying to connect directly to it (in some places) and delivering content from their own servers allows them much more control over the user experience, especially for cloud based services. Over time, this is something that will make the experience and performance for consumers even better – and Apple’s only just getting started.”

[Aclaración: CDN distribución de contenidos ≠ Cloud Services ya lo sabemos :P]
