A cost-effective solution in which system components can be installed on a single cabinet and later incrementally scaled to meet increasing traffic and usage.
This large scale optimal installation combines Amazon Elastic Cloud computing power with Amazon S3 storage and selected CDNs. Flixwagon’s backend solution allows dynamically scaling of servers from a minimal setup (supporting a relatively small number of users) to a peak setup supporting thousands of concurrent broadcasts and millions of viewers.
This architecture facilitates adding either constant or ad-hoc servers on other sites, with no special setup requirements. Flixwagon can also easily integrate an alternative HTTP-based file service to replace or support the S3 Storage solution (a local storage solution is also available).
Geo-separation of the servers’ location is available to enable hosting critical, sensitive servers (e.g. call management) at one location, while less sensitive servers (e.g. video servers) can be hosted at other locations that delivers low latency.
