The rise of CDN
As organizations race to meet global digital demand, the public Internet is under strain. It was simply not designed to support the amount of traffic that we see today. Extended enterprises with customer around the world need to empower users with access to the applications and data needed to run a business. But it can be difficult and expensive to deliver website content and applications to a globally dispersed audience.
This is especially true when attempting to deliver a high-quality user experience in some of the fastest-growing countries with less robust internet infrastructure.
The soaring demand of reliable delivery of multimedia and web content has pushed the growth of content delivery network (CDN) services, which evolved for expensive static CDN to mass affordable multi-purpose CDN implemented by specialist players but also by web services providers and telecom operators.
KALEAO for CDN
With KALEAO systems it is possible to
- Have a combination of cold, warm and hot storage with large capacity and bandwidth
- Leverage high performing storage thanks to the software defined storage coupled with physicalization
- Dispose of almost 1 TB/s per 3U chassis of available network bandwidth
- Benefit from true convergence that concentrate compute, storage and network on the same device. This makes compute and network close to the storage for minimum latency and maximum bandwidth without placing any load on the application processors
- Keep cost under control leveraging fast commodity storage and optimized converged design
- Reap additional advantages like low energy consumption, reduced footprint and rationalization of IT infrastructure, all factors that bring significantly down CAPEX and OPEX.
