Top 6 Features to Look out in a Cloud Video Server 29 June 2020

Top Features to Look out for in a Cloud Video Server

 

The global pandemic has caused a huge surge in online video bringing about a massive boom in the VoD business. People restricted to their homes have now taken to VoD platforms and the rate of consuming video content is more than ever. With such massive spikes in web traffic, it’s quite possible for your on-demand platform to crash if you have not invested in a stable and secure Cloud Video Server! To take full advantage of your on-demand streaming business, analyze the top 6 features to look out for in a Cloud Video Server to ensure a buffer-free, seamless playback experience with zero lag to your customers!

 

1. Encoding and Transcoding-

 

A streaming server with Cloud video encoding converts video files to make them viewable by any media players, devices or web browsers and operating systems, using the power of the Cloud minus any storage costs.

You can encode videos fast and reach the multitude of Internet connected devices without investing in costly infrastructure. Transcoding in the cloud scales instantly according to demand, giving you the power of large encoding clusters without burning a hole in your pocket.

 

2. Multiple CDN enabled Cloud Video Server

 

The sheer consumption of video demands a stable and reliable CDN for maximum outreach. A cloud video server will help you deliver your videos across the world to your viewers in lightning fast speeds, without the trouble of buffering. Go for a server that offers an expansive global network of data centers that can deliver dynamic content over the fastest and most reliable private backbone links. 

Nowadays, rich streaming content demands better performance from content providers, such as lower latency, improved load times, minimal disruptions and higher transfer speed. However, in such a demanding scenario, a single CDN is often prone to suffer from problems such as outages, vulnerability to DDoS attacks, disruptions, etc. Having multi CDN inbuilt, during network congestion, peer-to-peer content delivery takes the charge by reducing the number of HTTP requests that the server has to handle. The result is consistent higher quality streams for all viewers and enhanced scalability and geographic coverage.

Muvi Server is Multi-CDN enabled ensuring ultra-fast delivery of audio/video content to end-users around the globe.

 

3. Unlimited Storage-

 

Designed to support exponential data growth, a cloud video server makes it possible to store practically limitless amounts of data, that too, in a cost-effective manner. Cloud servers are architecturally designed in terms of data archiving and backup, enabling you to get access to deleted files as well. Growth constraints is a severe limitation of on-premise servers, but thanks to cloud storage, capacity is virtually unlimited.

 

4. Scale as you Go

 

As a VoD channel owner, you are challenged to meet unexpected traffic spikes without sacrificing the user experience. With a cloud server, you can customize your capacity on demand in the public cloud. You can scale VoD content as your data volumes increase or dial down capacity as and when necessary. All this is possible in just a few minutes. The possibility of scaling up and down as when required in a cloud video server enables you to confidently run business-critical workloads seamlessly without a hefty amount of upfront investment. 

Muvi Server lets you host and manage unlimited audio/video content with a carrier-grade platform that is coordinated & complete irrespective of content volume and consumption.

 

5. Security

 

A secure and stable cloud server is one of the top-most priorities of any streaming content owner. Original & intellectual property like video and audio content demands high-end security measures. A cloud streaming server offers baseline security measures that include data encryption, Server-side security & firewall, access control & user authentication.

 

6. Multi-device support-

 

For your video on demand channel to reach more subscribers, your cloud video server will need to work across a range of different devices and browsers. There are so many viewers out there using different mobiles, tablets, PCs with varied operating systems. Your cloud server would have to support cross-platform support for you to gain maximum content engagement. So, be wise and invest in a cross-device and cross-browser compatible server for seamless video playback.

With a powerful Cloud Video Server, your streaming platform could be up and running in minutes! Right from hosting, managing to seamless delivery and playback, Muvi Flux guarantees a stable, secure and captivating audio/video experience minus the heavy CapEx!
