Video as a heavy content requires efficient delivery with content delivery networks. A Content delivery network (CDN) is a geographically distributed network of proxy servers and their data centers. The goal is to provide quick transfer of media assets to end-users. The popularity of CDN services continues to grow, and today the majority of web traffic is served through CDNs, including traffic from major sites like Facebook, Netflix, and Amazon.
Telebreeze Cloud offers pre-integrated CDN service to its users, therefore no connetction of 3rd party CDN service needed.
Benefits of using a CDN for video services:
- Improving video delivery - By distributing video content closer to viewers by using a nearby CDN server (among other optimizations), viewers experience seamless video loading.
- Reducing bandwidth costs - Bandwidth consumption costs is a primary expense for for video portals. Through caching and other optimizations, CDNs are able to reduce the amount of data an origin server must provide, thus reducing costs for video service owners.
- Increasing content availability and redundancy - Large amounts of traffic or hardware failures can interrupt normal video service function. Thanks to their distributed nature, a CDN can handle more traffic and withstand hardware failure better than many origin servers.
- Improving video service security - A CDN may improve security by providing DDoS mitigation, improvements to security certificates, and other optimizations.
