Network operators recognise that Content Delivery Networks are essential for meeting user Internet application and content demands. The infrastructure must be tightly integrated to provide request routing, content caching, load balancing, scalability and reliability, whilst minimising deployment time and complexity. A major step towards achieving these goals is to embrace recent Software Defined Network and Network Function Virtualisation objectives and design principles. This paper outlines the OpenCache API; an interface used to define the behaviour and operation of an SDN-based content delivery platform in real-time. We demonstrate the applicability and effectiveness of such an API by implementing load-balancing and fail-over functionalities as part of an experimental deployment.
