Cloud Media

AirChord's Media Cloud's Platform is based on AirChord's private cloud and other public cloud network including Amazon Network®. It is a network of global secure servers equipped with proprietary software and deployed in many countries that relies on applied mathematics and algorithms to help solve congestion and vulnerability problems on the Internet. These servers reside within approximately 1,000 of the world's networks monitoring the Internet in real time - gathering information about traffic, congestion, and trouble spots. AirChord's Cloud uses this intelligence to optimize routes and replicate data dynamically to deliver content and applications more quickly, reliably, and securely. Our approach is to:

  • Eliminate long routes whenever possible - by replicating and delivering content and applications from servers close to end users around the world instead of from centralized servers.
  • Optimize routes - by mapping paths across the Internet to avoid trouble spots, compressing content, and replicating packets to ensure fast, complete delivery.

How it Works

AirChord Cloud's On Demand media Streaming is based on reverse proxy technology where content is drawn on the platform only when end users request content. Rather then deploying your multimedia files on a streaming server, you simply host your multimedia files on an HTTP Web server. When an end user requests a piece of streaming content, the end user is directed towards the nearest available edge streaming server. The edge server makes a determination as to whether or not it has the content item. It the edge server does have the content, the server will immediately begin to stream that content to the end user. In the event that the edge server does not have the content, the edge server will initiate an HTTP byte range request to retrieve the content from the HTTP Web server (or Cloud Storage repository). The multimedia file is requested via TCP to ensure a lossless copy of the stream to the edge server at which time the multimedia file is streamed to the end user over UDP or TCP - depending on what protocol the end user supports.
