Changed line 18 from:

Origin servers may be hosted in cloud services infrastructure or other virtualized environments. Cache and edge servers will be typically deployed on dedicated hardware subsystems. These hardware subsystems must have a minimum of 2 petabytes of storage and equivalent server processing power (e.g.3.2GHz Intel Quad Core XEONs). Currently, the media grid engine software runs on Fedora 16 operating system with 8 Gigabytes of memory. The project may be ported to other Linux operating systems as deemed appropriate by the working groups. InterStream expects these servers to be deployed with 10 Gigabyte Ethernet interfaces.

Origin servers may be hosted in cloud services infrastructure or other virtualized environments. Cache and edge servers will be typically deployed on dedicated hardware subsystems or using Network Function Virtualization (NFV).

Changed lines 8-15 from:

In other words, elements may offer overlapping subsets of the functionality listed above.

  • Originators store content and act as media servers for the media grid.
  • Peers route content from Originators to an Client, or ISTP plug-in.
  • Media Grid Clients terminate content from the grid.

Any of the media grid elements can act as an originator, peer or client. Therefore, the media grid can either be a heterogeneous or homogenous implementation of the above MGEs elements.

NOTE: Creating a CMGO generates a decryption ISPK, which resides with the corresponding MGO = OS. The encryption ISTP resides as part of the CMGO,and is used to authenticate requests for decryption
