Can I Manage Open Caching Nodes In the Same Way I Manage My Other Caches?

The short answer is “yes.” Because of the programmatic nature of Open Caching Nodes, they can be managed in much the same way. But, the interoperability between caches, when they are comprised of multiple vendors or technologies, is greatly enhanced when they are all compliant with the Open Caching specifications. Being compliant doesn’t change the nature or functionality of the cache. It simply allows the operator to manage them collectively, sharing data gathered from all caches with others in the value chain (such as content rights holders)
