ClosestNode.com 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
yourdomain.closestnode.com to the closest server to the client
that submitted the DNS request. The closest node selection is provided by a
network location service called
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.
