Concurrent is one of them, we use Qwilt but that will get expensive really quick with their licensing.

Wondering the same, but for IXes.

There's an open caching server effort, but open seems to be relative. They still want you to spend a boatload of money for a box from one of their vendors. I forget its name at the moment.

I work for a regional Midwestern US "Tier 2" ISP that provides both wholesale and enterprise Internet connectivity. We have caching platforms in place from the likes of Akamai, Google, Netflix, and Facebook; I was wondering if there are other CDN caching platforms out there we should be researching/deploying? PM me if more appropriate...
