Dell débuts Content Delivery Platform
April 11, 2012
Computing technology specialist Dell is teaming up with EdgeCast Networks and Elemental Technologies to make content production and delivery networks more attainable for service providers.
Dell Deliver, a content delivery platform powered by EdgeCast software, Elemental video processing software and Dell hardware, is designed to allow service providers to develop content delivery networks quickly and at a low cost.
The solution, Dell’s first-ever Content Delivery Platform (CDP), allows network providers to sell Content Delivery Network (CDN) services to the enterprise as well as manage the on-demand delivery of any video to any screen quickly, efficiently and at low cost. Aimed at offering network operators a new, easier path to CDN ownership, Dell Deliver is built on Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers and software from EdgeCast Networks and Elemental Technologies.
“Managing and maintaining a healthy IT infrastructure is getting more and more complicated for network operators as their infrastructures are not designed to support today’s growing demand for IP-based, bandwidth-hogging content,” said Laurie Hutto-Hill, general manager of Dell’s Global Telecommunications, Media and Entertainment organisation. “Until now, few content delivery models have been optimised for rich media, and it is hard to find existing technologies equipped to analyse and deliver content efficiently based on the requirements of a multitude of end-user devices. Dell Deliver offers flexible and scalable technology with significant cost advantages, allowing network providers to establish a healthy CDN that can support today’s ever-changing data landscape.”
Dell Deliver is available with a number of deployment models and built with software from EdgeCast Networks, the CDN provider that delivers a substantial portion of the world’s Internet traffic on behalf of more than 4,000 content providers and Elemental Technologies, a supplier of video processing solutions for multiscreen content delivery.
