Does anyone have an idea of the costing estimates on Limelight Networks' LimelightDELIVER platform, or any similar service providing high-capacity content delivery?
A friend and I are planning to start a site which will host and serve a sizable amount of content in the form of image files and PDF's, and we are wondering what the best approach is for this project.

Rackspace's CloudFiles is exactly what you're looking for. Its cloud file hosting (ala Amazon's S3), can optionally integrated with LimeLight's CDN, and with a pay-as-you-go pricing.
To quote from CloudFile's LimeLight integration:

Limelight won't even talk to you unless you're ready to buy a few TB per month, and go into a 1 year contract.
How much content are you looking to deliver, and where are most of your users coming from?
