A content delivery network is a large distributed system of servers deployed in multiple data centers. The goal of a content delivery network is to serve content to end-users with high availability and high performance. These networks serve a large fraction of content used and consumed today, including web text and images; downloadable objects like media files and software; applications and games; live streaming video and media; and on-demand streaming media.
Content Distribution Speed
A content distributor, like Microspace, helps content providers such as media companies and e-commerce vendors efficiently and quickly deliver their content to their audience around the world. They do this by caching static content such as images and videos for a website all around the world. This helps improve the load time of a website by loading the static content from the closest server on the providers network.
Content Delivery for Live Broadcasts
Content delivery can also be used for specific high-traffic events such as live broadcasts by continually dispersing content from the originating server to other servers in the network via satellite links.
Microspace provides a reliable, cost-effective and long-term delivery platform for our clients’ content. Our satellite uplink and broadcasting services are available worldwide. Call us today to discuss your content distribution and delivery needs!
