For instance, a company can control through which CDN or
through which edge platform streaming will be delivered to
users based on their location. While a user connecting from
Country A is served through the company’s private CDN
infrastructure, another user connecting from Country B is
served through a third-party CDN provider, keeping user
experience high and latency and buffers low.
The University of Massachusetts at Amherst has calculated
that an online video has only two seconds to make the viewer
keep on viewing. According to the study, buffering for two
seconds results in 5.8% decrease of viewers every second after
the first two seconds. Moreover, this means after 11 seconds,
if your video keeps buffering, you’ll be losing more than half
of your audience. In today’s world, CDN is a necessity for web
applications, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution when
it comes to infrastructure. Hybrid CDN optimizes all the
requirements to provide the best solution by combining cloud
and private CDN according to a customer’s needs. So which
CDN infrastructure do you think fits your business needs more?
The good news is that some technology providers have
emerged to set up and manage cloud and private CDNs for
OTT players for maximum performance and better control.
