The Research team focuses on improving tools and technologies we use today, and exploring next-generation opportunities we can accomplish in the future. The team relies on the expertise of its members on subjects including systems and networking, data science, machine learning, statistics, and algorithms. As an integral part of the Edgecast CDN, the team is involved in numerous aspects of the CDN, such as content storage, content delivery, security and traffic management. They use a pragmatic research model where the research scientists engage directly with other engineering teams.
