传微软将收购 Limelight?

传微软将收购 Limelight? 据 Silicon Alley Insider 的 Henry Blodget 报道,他听说微软将收购 Limelight Networks,很显然微软正计划建立自己的 CDN(内容传送网络)。引用自 Blodget:

Microsoft has recently settled on a single P2P architecture to support its Windows Live, MSN, and other online businesses (the company previously had three separate systems). Our source believes Microsoft also wants to own and operate its own CDN architecture and sees Limelight as a quick solution to the CDN piece of the puzzle.

微软计划建立自己的 P2P 网络来支持它的 Windows Live, MSN 以及其他在线业务(目前微软有3套独立的系统),而 Limelight 正是微软的一条快速有效的捷径。根据一份来自 DataCenterKnowledge.com 的报告,微软正在建立其 CDN 的过程中:

“Right now we’re actually building our own edge network,” 微软全球基础服务副总裁 Debra Chrapaty 在最近的一次 Web 架构师会议中表示。”We’re going to put nodes all over the world that we can leverage a little more broadly than we could by using a partner.”

传微软将收购 Limelight?

这将会对微软建立其 CDN 有着重要的意义,不过我们还需等待,相信微软不会让我们失望。
