meridian logo Meridian provides a simple, easy to use service for large-scale distributed applications to direct their clients to the closest application server, without any client side changes.

It works by redirecting DNS requests for to the closest server to the client that submitted the DNS request. The closest node selection is provided by a network location service called Meridian, and requires no changes to the clients, and minimal changes to the servers.

This service is provided free of charge, and serves as a demonstration of current research at Cornell University.
