As I promised in this last part of my blog series on Rich Media & Content sharing, I will get into high level details of Juniper's unique offer in this segment to Sevice Providers and Enterprises.
Here at Juniper, we have a great solution to turn this situation around and provide superior end user experience for Enterprise end users for any type of rich media content sharing use cases. Our CDN as a Service offer is primarily based on the CDN technology that Junos Content Encore brings complemented with DC network orchestration and service chaining capabilities of Contrail solution.
This solution combines cutting edge "content acceleration and optimization" algorithms from Junos Content with "agility" that Contrail brings in spawning services on demand in service chain within Enterprise L3VPN network.
This ultimate “CDN as a Service” solution orchestrated through Contrail and powered by Junos Content caching technology provides Enterprises with an ultimate video/rich media caching solution for any type of collaboration and content sharing use cases. By allowing data to remain within L3VPN, Enterprise customers can achieve higher quality of experience, while not having to move rich media content around from their point of origin.
In addition, Junos Content CDN service greatly enhances end user experience for large video downloads, rich media sharing and streaming independent of location of origin content server, either within Enterprise Data Center or outside of VPN in Amazon S3 public cloud with all the security and authentication mechanisms preserved.
Please have a look at how Junos Content CDN service orchestrated by Contrail solution improves enterprise end user experience at this demo video !
As a follow up to my blog from last week on overall enterprise content trends, I want to write about the ways and technologies that Enterprises utilize today to cope with the data tsunami caused by rich media and digital content sharing.
Today Enterprises typically use L3VPN service infrastructure provided by Telcos to facilitate digital content and rich media (video, digital media, software) sharing and collaboration between corporate headquarters and remote branch offices. Traditionally, end users at branch offices download content, webcasts or stream video content stored in Enterprise Data Centers and almost invariably, enterprise end users experience some degradation in video quality, stop and go download experience due to delays in WAN.
As cloud adoption continues and Enterprises embrace what cloud may have to offer, more and more they utilize very popular Amazon S3 Caching Services to help improve video quality, download consistency and streaming experience. However, this approach has several disadvantages including business critical rich digital media (video) staying outside of enterprise VPN, frequent migration of content between Enterprise content servers and public cloud storage (Amazon S3) and also opening up secure L3VPN to Internet access potentially conflicting with corporate IT policies.
Here at Juniper, we have a great solution to turn this situation around and provide superior end user experience for Enterprise customers for any type of rich media content sharing use cases. Our CDN as a Service offer is primarily based on the CDN and advanced caching technology that Junos Content Encore brings complemented with DC/Cloud network orchestration and service chaining capabilities of Contrail SDN solution. This solution combines cutting edge content acceleration and optimization algorithms from Junos Content with agility that Contrail brings in spawning services on demand in service chain with Enterprise L3VPN network.
Please stay tuned to my next blog where I will get into the Juniper CDN solution details and share with you a great video demo!
My colleague Priya wrote a great blog about integrating functionality into the network as applications, rather than deploying standalone appliances. The integration of caching and content delivery functionality into the market-leading MX series is a great example of this, but in the case the benefits go even beyond the advantages of simplification and consolidation.Read more...
I had an experience recently that reminded me of the prevalence of online video. I was in my vehicle, at a park in small town New Hampshire waiting to pick up someone from a youth football event. A truck pulled in next to me with lettering on the door advertising that it was the official vehicle of a paranormal research business, specializing in ghosts and aliens...
Within a few seconds, I was watching a video of a (supposed) alien interrogation. Within a few minutes, I’d sent the website and video link off to a few friends who I knew would be interested to know we had a local we could call in the event of ghost or alien trouble.Read more...
It has been an interesting week for online video, with lots of news coming out ahead of the IBC event that started last week. In terms of illustrating the impact of video on the network, though, you’d be hard pressed to find a better example than the presidential race.
One example: according to an article on Boston.com, Michelle Obama’s speech from the DNC generated 2.58 million views between when it was delivered on Thursday evening and when the article ran on FridayRead more...
