Yesterday we noted that the BBC is testing out its own content delivery network (CDN) using technology from Velocix (formerly Cachelogic). In this interview with Beet.TV, Velocix CEO Phill Robinson talks about his company’s approach to CDN technology, which incorporates peer-to-peer technology in a hybrid CDN, and how it differs from other CDNs. This video runs about 4 minutes and 30 seconds.
