It is meritorious but hard to develop a scalable and manageable system to effectively distribute the large-scale multimedia contents. In this paper, an integrated hierarchical content distribution system is proposed, which utilizes the complementary advantages of both CDN (content delivery network) and P2P (peer-to-peer). The hybrid architecture and distribution operations are presented in detail. The clear performance benefits of our approach are shown with comparison of conventional CDN and P2P.
