Do-It-Yourself Content Delivery Network Orchestrator
Content delivery networks (CDNs)  provide fast and reliable content access to the end-users. CDN providers (e.g., Akamai ), either own the entire infrastructure or it is outsourced to a single Cloud provider. Content owners (e.g., clients and end-users) need to establish expensive contracts with third party ISPs or CDN providers. Hence, existing CDN services are out of reach for all but large enterprises. Current CDNs do not provide services that allow an end-user to create dynamic content such as combining music videos from an existing content source on the Internet. Finally, the content owners do not have low-level control over the orchestration operations such as, multiple Cloud provider selection and resource management for hosting content. Hence, the content owners are dependent on their CDN providers to perform these operations behind the scene.
