Tonight, I just heard about the Coral Content Distribution Network. Say you have a large file that you want to distribute on the Internet in a load-balanced way, free from succumbing to the Slashdot effect. Put it on your webserver as normal. Then, if you add these 14 characters to the end of the hostname in your file’s URL:
the Coral Network will only download your file once and then handle the rest of the distribution for you in a peer-to-peer, distributed way.
Is that not freakin’ cool??!! Check it out.
