I'm happy to announce that Jeffrey Cohen, GM of Microsoft's Edge Computing Network is our first confirmed keynote for the Content Delivery Summit taking place in May 2009. Jeffrey brings some very unique experience to the summit since he is responsible for the build out of Microsoft's own internal content delivery network but also contracts directly with all of the major CDNs on video delivery.
As many have probably read, there has been a lot of speculation going on in the news recently about Microsoft's CDN plans and what they could mean to the industry. Some have suggested that Microsoft plans to compete with other CDNs, might potentially purchase a CDN or could take all of their own CDN business in-house. This is your chance to come hear first-hand what Microsoft's CDN strategy is and hear their thoughts on the role that online video is going to play in the future.
