TELUS deploys Velocix’s hybrid-cloud streaming solution

March 11, 2024

Velocix, the carrier-grade cloud TV software provider, has announced that TELUS, the communications technology company, has initiated the first phase of its hybrid-cloud video streaming project based on Velocix’s Hybrid-cloud Origin and Hybrid-cloud CDN software. This hybrid-cloud architecture runs on both Google Cloud Platform and on-premises caching and streaming technology.

The hybrid-cloud streaming platform represents a key strategic step in lowering delivery costs and improving scaling flexibility. In the initial deployment, TELUS will use Velocix’s Hybrid-cloud Origin to improve the efficiency of live recording services like nPVR. A Velocix Hybrid-cloud CDN will operate in concert with the Hybrid-cloud Origin to facilitate streaming, enabling TELUS to deploy caches that span private, public and edge-cloud frameworks. With this architecture, high performance on-premises caching tiers can be augmented with cloud-based CDN capacity that can be spun up instantly to meet peak demands, helping to further optimise the overall efficiency of the streaming platform.

Jim Brickmeier, CEO at Velocix, said: “We are proud to be working with TELUS on such a strategic project and breaking new ground with our hybrid-cloud video solutions. With our new architecture, we can harness the strengths of multiple deployment environments and enable customers around the globe to build better and more profitable video businesses.”
