Replica server placement is one of the crucial concerns for a given geographic diversity associated with placement problems in content delivery network (CDN). After reviewing the existing literatures, it is noted that studies are more for solving placement problem in conventional CDN and not much over cloud-based CDN architectures, which some few studies are reported towards replica selection are much in its nascent stages of development. Moreover, such models are not benchmarked or practically assessed to prove its effectiveness. Hence, the proposed study introduces a novel design of computational framework associated with cloud-based CDN which can facilitate cost-effective replica server management for enhanced service delivery. Implemented using analytical research methodology, the simulated study outcome shows that proposed scheme offers reduced cost, reduced resource dependencies, reduced latency, and faster processing time in contrast to existing models of replica server placement.
