Apple fires up own CDN

According to reports in Apple’s own CDN has gone live in the US and Europe, and the company is delivering its own content directly.

According to the report, Apple has in place more than ten times the capacity currently being used, and that while it retains Akamai’s CDN services for iTunes and Level 3’s for Radio and other app downloads, it is only a matter of time before a significant amount of this traffic is similarly transferred.

Apple is also said to have interconnect deals ready with multiple ISPs, including Comcast, and has paid to get direct access to their networks.
