We believe the Internet has strayed from its roots and become too centralized and inefficient. Today, streaming video accounts for 70% of all Internet traffic and broadcasters are already encountering huge scalability and stream quality issues due to a server-centric approach. This approach is rooted in the fact that, until recently, HTTP was the only communication protocol that web browsers supported. This meant that browsers could only communicate with HTTP servers. Then came WebRTC, which made it possible for browsers to communicate directly with other browsers. When Google created WebRTC back in 2012, we saw an opportunity to create a truly seamless CDN service, one that did not require end users to install a proprietary client.Read more...
Web caching is the activity of storing data for reuse, such as a copy of a web page served by a web server. It is cached or stored the first time a user visits the page and the next time a user requests the same page, a cache will serve the copy, which helps keep the origin server from getting overloaded.
Video caching, like any other type of data caching, temporarily stores frequently accessed videos or video segments close to where viewers are located on the network. Bandwidth optimization occurs because video no longer has to travel the entire length of the corporate network.
In-memory data caching can be one of the most effective strategies to improve your overall application performance and to reduce your database costs. Caching can be applied to any type of database including relational databases such as Amazon RDS or NoSQL databases such as Amazon DynamoDB, MongoDB and Apache Cassandra. The best part of caching is that it’s minimally invasive to implement and by doing so, your application performance regarding both scale and speed is dramatically improved.
