Published on

A key component of the Aura Licensed CDN, Object Store is a replicated HTTP object store that stores media content persistently for content origination for a CDN. It supports file ingest from content management systems via multiple ingest protocols and originates that content for both linear and VOD applications. Designed specifically for network operators seeking a resilient online media storage solution to supplement their CDNs, Object Store is easy to manage, affordable, and scales to grow with business needs.

Object Store Product Brief - Highly scalable, persistent media content store for content origination for a CDN

  1. 1. AKAMAI NETWORK OPERATOR SOLUTIONS: PRODUCT BRIEF The consumption of online rich media is at an all time high and growing, fueled by the proliferation of mobile devices and a widening array of web content choices. More than ever, consumers expect a fast, secure, reliable media viewing experience on any device. To feed demand and meet expectations, network operators are increasingly deploying their own CDNs, and dealing with the challenges of fully integrating web content origin with that CDN to support live and on-demand applications. Akamai offers the Aura Licensed CDN (LCDN), a suite of licensed Operator CDN (OCDN) solutions that provide a highly scalable media CDN for multiscreen video services, large object delivery and HTTP caching. It helps operators create opportunities for new revenue, cost reductions and increased network efficiency, and deliver high quality experiences for online content, including Over-the-Top (OTT) content services that increase subscriber loyalty. Object Store Object Store, a key component of the Aura LCDN, is a replicated HTTP object store that stores media content persistently for content origination for a CDN. It supports file ingest from content management systems via multiple ingest protocols and originates that content for both linear and VOD applications. Designed specifically for network operators seeking a resilient online media storage solution to supplement their CDNs, Object Store is easy to manage, affordable, and scales to grow with business needs. How it Works Object Store provides the root of the CDN hierarchy, serving cache misses from multiple CDN caching tiers downstream. Based on standard HTTP delivery, it offers a scale-out content delivery architecture for redundancy and storage expansion in which several nodes are connected to form a common storage cluster with a single virtualized namespace. Features • Scale-out Storage — Scale to billions of files and petabytes of cloud storage. Object Store runs on clustered commodity servers incorporating the latest hardware technology so you can add disks and nodes easily to accommodate growing online content storage needs without service disruption. I/O bandwidth and transaction processing capacity is added with each node, and ingest/delivery capacity grows with storage. • Resiliency and High Performance — Achieve high fault tolerance with multiple levels of redundancy by employing mirroring and automatic failover. And because Object Store leverages the same scalability techniques employed by HyperCache you are able to optimize performance in delivering online content. • Full CDN Integration — Upload and manage your own web content through separate cloud-based content delivery accounts. Object Store supports a simple interface that makes it easy to integrate into a your content management workflow. Because Object Store uses the same front-end interface as HyperCache technology deployed throughout the rest of the HTTP caching hierarchy, the interaction between Object Store and the rest of the CDN is optimized. BENEFITS TO YOUR BUSINESS • Extend capacity with the ability to scale to petabytes of storage • Scale linearly — I/O bandwidth and request processing scale with storage • Simplify content management through traditional file transfer APIs or REST-based cloud storage APIs • Support live and on-demand applications through redundant live encoder feeds and HTTP adaptive streaming • Boost performance with highly scalable read-write access and no central database • Manage content independently with separate authenticated CDN accounts • Offer non-stop operation with in-service capacity expansion and in-service software upgrades • Support ingest and delivery of HTTP adaptive bit-rate protocols including Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming and Adobe HDS Object Store Highly scalable, persistent media content store for content origination for a CDN
