100TB+ edge storage
Streaming Server includes the Massive Storage Engine to store multi-terabyte data sets in-cache, minimizing backend requests for streaming VoD. This means viewers can enjoy stable, lightning-fast delivery from vast content libraries.

Pre-fetch content
Predictively load data into the cache before it is requested so it’s ready to serve immediately. Prefetching improves cache-hit ratios, so you can stop buffering issues and treat viewers to a smooth video stream server.
Our Streaming Server can match any demand with auto-scaling in the cloud or a container service. Streamlined auto-scaling produces the configuration files so each node automatically discovers its peers and stays up to date, increasing and decreasing the capacity as required.
Origin protection
Streaming Server features a high-performance content replication engine and protective layer against massive traffic floods, boosting the reliability of your video streaming service no matter how many people are watching.
Monitoring and analytics
An administration console and statistics engine provides real-time control and analysis of all your web traffic.
