How can Streamroot help?
A unique approach to multi-CDN: performance-based traffic management
CDN Load Balancer is a CDN switching solution for platforms that care about quality. Unlike DNS or server-side CDN load balancers, CDN Load Balancer sits within the video player and makes switching decisions based on individual performance feedback from the device. Better yet, it can switch CDNs in the middle of a stream without the user having to refresh the page in the event that a CDN goes down in the middle of a stream.
How does it work?
Client-side CDN switching mechanism
In the beginning of a video session, CDN Load Balancer selects the appropriate CDN from your geographical and business inputs.
During the session, our load balancer takes CDN selection a step further. For each segment request, current CDN bandwidth, latency and errors are calculated to assess whether or not a switch should be made to improve quality or avoid potential CDN congestion or failure. The next video segment request is then directed to the new CDN.
Insurance against CDN failure
Circumvent congestion and avoid service outages thanks to per-segment CDN selection.
