Swooshing In

The P2P frenzy continues as Akamai acquires RedSwoosh.

As I've previously blogged, I'm not a big fan of P2P and think that it has limited benefits, but one technology that does have potential is server side P2P. The complex technology behind content delivery networks means that scale is difficult to achieve and companies such as Cachelogic are capitalising on this with a server side P2P model that reduces the cost of delivery without intruding on the viewer's machine.
