Content Sourcing –

  • Cloudflare – IP information was sent and cross connect is done. Brent will reach out to them.
  • Fastly has gone dark, we will reach out again
  • Netflix – sent some data. They usually look for about 5 Gig of data. Bresco has about 3 Gig and Ampex has 3 Gig as well. Since we are a non-profit, they want one member to house the servers and be responsible for them. Brent is willing to host the server and handle the cache.

  • Plan to put graph on website of usage once we hit 1 Gig
  • CEC plans to start moving more traffic to the IX based on changes they are making to their network
