Nokia Technologies partnered with Akamai to deliver a live stream using the Akamai Network. Nokia Technologies used an OZO to live stream a performance by California surf-rock band Best Coast from atop the Capitol Records tower in Hollywood to guests and press at the event in downtown Los Angeles, who got to watch via VR headsets. There were two major challenges – the first was to transport the live stream over the general internet from the recording site to the event venue, which was seven miles away – and the second, to accommodate concurrent playback at the reception venue. Using UDP for the first mile helped stabilize any throughput fluctuations from the production site. Once at the ingest server, the stream was moved through the Akamai Intelligent Network and delivered via an edge server in Los Angeles to the event venue via their WAN link. Akamai’s team quickly supplied Nokia Technologies with a Cisco WAVE Appliance with Akamai Connect SW to test and validate live and on-demand HTTP/S video caching. Akamai Connect integrated into Cisco hardware was able to offload video traffic from the event’s WAN and optimize stream quality for each player. The overall VR experience was a success. Akamai Media Services Live plus Cisco IWAN with Akamai Connect was an integral component to making the demo a success.

Arbor Networks reports on the biggest distributed denial of service attack, which had a whopping load of 500 Gbps. The yearly Arbor survey uses data from hosts, mobile service providers and service providers. The survey, which ran until November 2015, got the results based on the 354 global participants who answered questions on network safety specifically about protocols used for reflection/amplification. The largest attack reported by a respondent this year was 500Gbps, with other respondents reporting attacks of 450 Gbps, 425 Gbps, respectively. This marks a worrying trend among top-end size DDoS attacks, which get more ambitious every year. While only five respondents found evidence of DDoS attacks topping 200 Gbps, there were many reports of attacks between 100 and 200 Gbps. A vast majority of respondents identified application-layer DDoS attacks, which targeted DNS services instead of Web servers. Looking at the larger picture, multi-vector attacks counted for 56 percent of customer outages, up from 42 percent in the previous year.

The cloud used to be viewed as a place of significant cost savings: rather than purchasing and maintaining dozens of server stacks, organizations could outsource this and purchase compute power on an as-needed basis. In the ensuing rush to cloud architecture, however, many companies simply lifted-and-shifted their old financial bad habits. The sheer speed of […]
