What is the BitTorrent protocol, and the technology behind it? What is the difference between BitTorrent and a content distribution network (CDN)?



  • BitTorrent (the software) uses the - BitTorrent protocol.
  • What is the difference between "BitTorrent" and CDN? One is a technology, the other is an organizational approach. A CDN is not a technology to start with - it is a network used to deliver content using whatever standard the customer needs (mostly HTTP) using technology. The term CDN does not imply any specific technology.

I don't know what exactly you're looking for, but if you find the wiki site lacking for bitorrent and CDN's maybe you can specify what you're trying to figure out?
