Benefits of having scalable infrastructure

With a growing number of connected streaming devices, operating and scaling infrastructure systems has become a challenge.

For must-see live events with everyone tuning in at the same time, the load of a CDN or DRM service can explode, i.e. jumping from a few views and license requests to over 50 million in minutes. Companies look for solutions to accommodate the demand for large live sports events and high user-base VOD services, whilst maintaining low latency without buffering. Additionally, with ever increasing qualities of content ranging from UHD, 8K, HDR, and beyond, the requirements content owners have for content protection increase as well. The current challenge lies in correctly fulfilling these requirements across a multitude of viewing devices and platforms with different security levels while ensuring the best possible user experience. And that requires in-depth knowledge and expertise of a fragmented world of device platforms as well as multiple DRM technologies.

To combat scalability and increasing complexity issues, it’s important to rely on flexible solutions with a global footprint and a good set of turnkey features. Our DRMtoday service is the perfect choice. To handle any sudden surges in viewers, we provide a highly reliable and scalable cloud infrastructure to allow many millions of license deliveries every day and peak times to be served without delays. To let the audience enjoy content with minimal startup time, we utilize a global infrastructure to operate servers near the viewers, minimizing key delivery time, and enabling low-latency streaming.
