However, unlike existing commercial CDN services providers such as Limelight Networks and Akamai the MediaWise Cloud require no ownerships of computing infrastructure and instead rely on the public Internet and public cloud services (e.g., commercial cloud storage to store its content).

In this paper, we give a brief overview of MediaWise Cloud architecture and present a comprehensive discussion on research objectives related to its service components. Finally, we also compare the features supported by the existing CDN services against the envisioned objectives of MediaWise Cloud.
