Craig Labovitz, DeepField Networks

Dr. Craig Labovitz is co-founder and president of DeepField Networks, a recently founded cloud networking startup. He has spent the last two decades studying the Internet infrastructure and cloud evolution, including several seminal papers on Internet topology and economics. Previously, he designed and built the largest carrier security solution in the world as the Chief Architect at Arbor Networks. Labovitz has also held research and management positions at Microsoft and Merit Networks.
Abstract: In previous talks, we looked at the rapidly evolving "Hyper-Giants", or the 150 large content and hosting networks (e.g. Facebook, Google, etc.) that now contribute an amazing 50% of all Internet traffic globally.

This talk looks at the other 50% of traffic.

Specifically, FileSharing, P2P and adult traffic represent a massive and growing portion of Internet traffic globally (as well as a sizable economic activity). From first appearances, the universe of adult domain names, number of seed boxes / trackers and file sharing sites appears limitless and endlessly varied.

But in this talk, we take a deeper look at the Internet infrastructure supporting these Internet industries. We show that a small number of companies manage these thousands of domain names and an even smaller number of specialized hosting, CDN, analytics and advertisement companies provide the infrastructure. In the case of file sharing, we show that four hosting companies provide the infrastructure for more than 80% of all file sharing traffic globally.
