[AusNOG] Deep buffer switches and CDN networks

Hi Noggers,

I just finished watching the NANOG presentation of Netflix openconnect[1],
I noticed that their core switch of choice was an Arista 7500E which is a
deep buffer switch. I remember seeing a lot of comments around buffer bloat
for deep buffer switches. Would this be considered an acceptable use case
for this type of switch in the DC?

Has anyone got experience with ideal switch types (shallow, deep buffers)
for edge CDN network deployments?
