Broadpeak, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming solutions for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, has announced that its umbrellaCDN CDN selection solution is now available on AWS Marketplace. AWS Marketplace is a digital catalogue with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that makes it easy to find, test, buy and deploy software that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Using Broadpeak’s umbrellaCDN solution, video service providers can always select the best CDN for streaming video content based on various criteria, such as device, geolocation, type of customer or network operator. By making umbrellaCDN accessible on AWS Marketplace, Broadpeak simplifies the deployment and use of its solution while providing reliable, transparent and flexible pricing.
Running umbrellaCDN on AWS, video service providers and broadcasters can increase flexibility, scalability and save costs. By defining rules in umbrellaCDN, the best CDN is chosen for each video session, and any CDN supporting HTTP redirect can be used. Thanks to the automated installation on AWS, video service providers can easily start realising the benefits of Broadpeak’s CDN selection solution. The service configuration is carried out in minutes via the convenient umbrellaCDN web interface by listing the available CDN services — which have been contracted previously — and by creating CDN selection rules.
umbrellaCDN offers full control over allocation rules and detailed end-user analytics, and Broadpeak’s global team of experts is available for configuration support when needed, as well as to help video service providers leverage analytics generated.
“We are thrilled to be working with AWS and to make umbrellaCDN available to customers in a way that is faster and easier than ever before,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. “Video streaming is complex and, using a multi-CDN strategy fuelled by an easy-to-use product such as our umbrellaCDN, service providers can ensure a superior quality of experience for their subscribers on every screen.”
