I’ve recently seen someone from the Satellite Applications Catapult come up on the UKNOF mailing list, asking about how best to get dark fibre from their Harwell offices into London with a view to distributing lots of satellite imagery. Obviously a CDN is the way to go, but the first thing that came to mind is whether they’ve got a new satellite. I mean, it’s vaguely surprising that an organisation that runs its own cloud platform would be asking for fairly simple networking advice, and even more so one that owns this.
