Streamroot, GlobalDots reseller agreement for video CDN acceleration
January 25, 2017
Streamroot, a specialist in hybrid OTT video delivery, has entered into a global reseller agreement with GlobalDots, a web performance, cloud optimisation and cloud security system integrator.
Through this agreement, GlobalDots becomes a worldwide reseller of Streamroot’s industry-leading peer-accelerated delivery technology. It allows existing and new GlobalDots customers to use Streamroot’s peer-to-peer solution as a complementary technology to their existing content delivery infrastructure, all via a single service provider.
Entirely compatible with traditional CDNs, Streamroot enables higher quality video delivery by smartly requesting content segments from the CDN as well as from peer-users. As a result, the technology promotes improved QoS, farther reach, better scaling and optimized CDN costs for publishers delivering large quantities of streaming video.
“Offering high-quality video at scale is of paramount importance to our customers; we naturally sought to partner with Streamroot,” says Yuval Rachlin, Founder and CEO of GlobalDots. “Streamroot can be used in tandem with the existing CDN solutions in our portfolio, and brings great value in its ability to improve performance, streamline cost and more intelligently provision bandwidth.”
Streamroot Co-founder and CEO Pierre-Louis Theron agrees: “Streamroot is the perfect complement to GlobalDots’ video CDN solutions. This is an unparalleled opportunity for customers who are looking to gain a competitive edge, fortify their delivery infrastructure and deliver more or higher quality video within their current CDN budget.”
Pursuant to the agreement, GlobalDots enjoys the right to sell Streamroot’s technology across its existing and new customer base. Streamroot in turn greatly expands its geographical sales reach and gains access to GlobalDots’ global network of highly skilled professionals.
“We look forward to the mutual benefits of this partnership. GlobalDots is trusted throughout the industry for its added-value consulting and customized delivery solutions. We are thrilled to be working together to offer customers the most high-performance video delivery architecture available,” adds Theron.
