The successful of the Web in the last decade has significantly modified the type of resources that are distributed through the Internet. The initial static contents are now enriched by dynamically generated resources, with an increasing amount of multimedia and personalized services. This evolution is shifting the research focus from Web content delivery to service delivery that introduces new scalability and performance problems to the hardware/software infrastructures that have to generate and distribute content.
Indeed, the heterogeneity and richness of present and future services increase the necessity of high performance architectures that exploit caching and replication through multiple servers that are distributed over a local and/or a geographical area. In these lessons, we investigate the main architectures for efficient generation, adaptation and delivery of contents and services through the Internet with a major focus on performance. We will illustrate the advantages and limits of current solutions, and possible directions for future research.
