Its primary function will be as an Origin for a content delivery network.
As far as I understand it will act in a similar way to a DNS root. Changes
will be pushed back to the origin and it will hold the master copy but it
wont actually do any client serving.

Saying that, it should probably be capable of client serving but there will
undoubtably be layers of some caching in front.

Metadata ops should be low as the files are relatively big and static.
