Paper Abstract

This paper explores the economics of scalable network services by posing two simple questions. First, what is the difference between scale economics and scalability? Second, why and how should we scale network services for competition and cooperation? By answering these questions in the context of network services such as multicast, QoS and web caching, we gain some insight into the tradeoffs involved in the design of scalable network services.
