Accelerating datacenter and mobile content delivery networks
Preventing network congestion is a top-of-mind issue for today’s IT professionals. The exploding growth of rich media within the datacenter environment and on mobile devices is pushing the bandwidth envelope – and the need is greater than ever for more efficient media processors and storage solutions.
The platform accelerates storage and networking in datacenters and mobile networks. It allows datacenter and mobile network operators to store files, like frequently viewed video content, closer to users at the edge of the network to improve quality of experience (QoE), reduce latency, and optimize bandwidth usage.
CDN servers using the LSI portfolio of networking and storage solutions provide the foundation that enables equipment manufacturers to reduce operating expenses for their customers while delivering rich media content and enabling new services.
By preventing network congestion, datacenter and mobile CDN servers make it easier for users to access live broadcast video, video on-demand, and other video and graphics-intensive content from any screen, at any time, and in any place.
Accelerating datacenter media applications
At the same time, the Axxia Media Accelerator when used alone provides a great way to get a handle on the large, growing amount of video that traverses datacenter networks. As video becomes the dominant component of IP traffic and media applications are migrating to the datacenter in a virtualized environment, finding a way to increase media processing capabilities is now more important than ever.
The robust deterministic attributes of the Axxia Media Accelerator, which is based on the StarPro® SP2700 Media Processor
, provides maximum network throughput while preserving valuable CPU cycles for application processing. By offloading the host processor, Axxia Media Accelerator can boost performance significantly while and lowering power consumption and operating expenses. It accelerates host-based media applications such as HD video transcoding & streaming, video conferencing, intelligent video surveillance, and IP-PBXs for enterprise unified communications.
