FILE TRANSFER OPTIMIZATION

dots-png

GlobalDots accelerates traffic from an end user to an origin server by using DNS to redirect traffic across a Virtual Network. GlobalDots' Virtual Network intelligently analyzes the Internet Backbone to find the fastest routes between any two endpoints, avoiding congestion and overcoming the performance problems caused by least cost routing. In the process, it delivers 20x better data transfer performance. Our solution is deployed across public clouds and delivered “as-a-Service,” so there is no hardware or caching to configure.

Our platform carries content along a virtual network of TCRs, so it looks to the rest of the network like any other network proxy - such as a load balancer, SSL offload or CDN cache. The end user connects to a TCR, which then routes that traffic along the virtual network to the origin server. Because TCRs act as network proxies, the connection request that reaches the origin server will have the IP address of a local TCR, referred to as a “TCR Out”.

GD-Streaming-02

 

The GlobalDots Virtual Network uses Proxy Protocol to give the load balancer at the origin connection information from the end user requesting a connection to the origin server. The load balancer then adds connection information to the X-Forwarded-For headers of each HTTP request such as the source IP address, destination IP address, and port numbers.

Our solution complements CDNs in several ways

ACCELERATE DYNAMIC OR
UNCHANGEABLE CONTENT

GlobalDots does not require the replication or synchronization of data at the edge to PoPs. Instead, we accelerate the data to the end-user directly from origin server.

MEET STRINGENT
REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS

Replacing content across a global network of CDN caches may conflict with financial regulations, EU data residency laws and Chinese Internet Content Provider licenses.

SUPPORT SECURITY
REQUIREMENTS

CDNs cache unencrypted static content in many locations, breaking the chain of custody for security conscious SaaS providers and opening up potential security vulnerabilities.

 

DNS LOAD BALANCING

dots-orange

GlobalDots offers a revolutionary approach to managing the global performance and availability of web and mobile applications through multi-platform load balancing.



Organizations are continuously striving to optimize the delivery of services and web applications to their end-users whilst maximizing the returns on their investment. With an ever-increasing requirement for "always on", "can't go dark" high quality services, end-users continue to push organizations for higher levels of availability and performance. To meet these demands, organizations continuously need to monitor the end-user experience and then apply the information collected quickly to adapt their infrastructure and content delivery services.


GlobalDots aim to satisfy this requirement by combining real-time end-user quality of service (QoS) monitoring with global server load-balancing, so that as changes in QoS occur between the end-user and the serving infrastructure. these changes can be acted upon ensuring the best end-user experience possible whilst balancing the commercial needs of the business.

GD-Streaming-03

MULTI CDN / HYBRID CDN

dots-orange

Traditional CDNs all work the same way - they deploy lots of HTTP servers throughout the world and cache (or store) content (images, text, videos, etc.) on these servers. The idea is to move the content physically closer to end users (no matter where they are in the world) so that the content can be more quickly downloaded to such end users. However, no single CDN can guarantee 100% uptime.

Multi-CDN solution offers much more advantages

Reasons for a Multi-CDN

100% uptime - always best performance secured!

GD-Streaming-04

No single CDN can realistically provide 100% availability. However, by intelligently balancing content delivery among multiple CDNs, availability can approach 100%.

MULTI-CDN BENEFITS FOR STREAMING

PERFORMANCE

Delivering assets on several CDNs at one time will promote the best possible performance which means decrease video buffering, speed startup and will help to increase your user base.

CONTROL

Instead of depending on one, two or three CDNs and having the products tied to one CDN, take over the control with Global Traffic Management with an automated routing agent, based on the performance data collected daily from approx. 900 million users.

COST OPTIMIZATION

The more CDNs you have, the easier is to reduce costs and you can even setup the load balancing configuration. With GlobalDots you can do this based on costs (or monthly existing commits), instead of pure performance parameters. You will pay for the decisions they made based on your chosen balancing strategy.

 

When to use Multi or Hybrid CDN strategies

ORIGIN FRONTEND BY MULTIPLE CDNs

MULTI-CDN
  • Global Reach
  • Daily/peak usage breaks peering
  • Busy hour "Netflix" effect
  • Sudden viral popularity
  • Scheduled live events / VOD premieres
  • No path diversity

HYBRID CDN

HYBRID CDN

  • Local origin delivery  
  • Long tail catalogs seldom in cache
  • User generated delivery
  • Ethnic content 

The biggest problems if you want to build a video streaming backbone are the facts that you have to choose several vendors, optimize load balancing, optimize video player and so on. Enterprises are usually faced with situations in which they don't know how to connect various elements into one network.

GlobalDots helps you solve these problems instantly -- with out turnkey solution you can bring your video backbone online fast & efficiently. Our entire solution, or some parts of it (if you choose only them), are placed under one bill for your convenience, so you can easily track your expenses.

P2P STREAMING

dots-png

The problem of content delivery is not a new one. There just isn’t enough bandwidth today to handle all the traffic, especially during big releases and popular live streaming events. The only way to scale with the demand is to decentralize the model and remove the bottlenecks.

BUT SERVER CAPACITY ONLY GROWS LINEARLY

GD-Streaming-05

WebRTC unlocked that distributed promise with ubiquitous, secured P2P technology. Now we can finally use this because the web has embraced open standards with security and performance as WebRTC became part of HTML5.

P2P streaming works by creating a mesh network consisting of users who are watching the same content and coordinating these users so that they send video segments to each other instead of everyone always fetching the segments from an edge server.

Specifically, GlobalDots espouses a hybrid solution where a broadcaster uses our solution in combination with one or more HTTP-based CDNs -- i.e., don't rip out your existing CDN infrastructure, just add them as another option in your multi-CDN portfolio. The integration point is via one line of JavaScript which implements a hybrid switcher -- once GlobalDots is integrated, users can fetch segments from either an edge server or from their peer group, whichever channel performs better at that given moment in time.

As more chunk requests are handled by the peer group, the broadcaster sees dramatic reductions in server load and, consequently, higher stream quality (faster load times, less buffering, longer viewing sessions).

GD-Streaming-06

STREAMING ANALYTICS

dots-orange

Video analytics is an essential part of building a successful video streaming service.

Our analytics solution provides a comprehensive overview of your streaming content, in order to understand viewer experience and behavior, and how they engage with your content.

It shows the following data:


Ad revenue on videos • Ad engagement / ads skipped • Bounce rate • Churn rate • Duration of viewing • Buffering • If people are watching specific sections

All this data helps you optimize your content and deliver the right content to your audiences, improving their user experience.

CLOUD OPTIMIZATION

dots-png

GlobalDots' Elastic Cloud Optimization platform elegantly addresses cloud cost and management challenges with the reliable and efficient use of AWS’ Spot Market to reduce EC2 costs by 60% - 80% compared to On Demand Instance pricing -- while still delivering 100% availability for high demand and persistent applications.

Amazon created the Spot Market to optimize their data center utilization by leveraging their spare capacity. However, if a customer pays for higher priced On-Demand or Reserved Instances, Amazon gives the user 2 minutes notice and takes Instance out of the Spot Market and provides it to the higher paying customer.

Our platform uses predictive algorithm technology to identify and terminate Spot Instances that are about to be “interrupted” by AWS. Then, it automatically and transparently transitions applications to an “available” Spot Instance with absolutely no downtime regardless of application type or demand requirements.

EC2 Spot Instances can be used without GlobalDots platform, but there’s a catch - the Spot Instances won’t necessarily be available when you need or want to use them. Managing and strategizing around interruptible Spot Instances without GlobalDots can be challenging, not to mention unsuitable for AWS customers running high demand, persistent applications that must deliver stable online end user experiences.

IP UPSTREAM

dots-orange

If you are currently utilizing a CDN, need to lower latency of dynamic content to the end user, lower the cost of outbound traffic from AWS, or integrate your CDN with your cloud provider, GlobalDots wants to address three major problems in this Hybrid CDN scenario:

How to optimize dynamic content delivery • How to lower transit costs • How to bridge the integration gap between AWS and a CDN

GlobalDots enables you to achieve a level of predictable performance for the delivery of dynamic content, similar to what you can expect when delivering static content through a CDN. GlobalDots is able to optimize the internet traffic in the dynamic content domain directly to the end user.

This is accomplished by routing traffic through the lowest latency route - the best possible path with latency as the parameter. Simultaneously, GlobalDots is able to optimize the static content to the CDN, which could mean a lower latency connection to your CDN.

GD-Streaming-10

 

Moving traffic around the CDN can have significant savings on transit costs. Coupled with a solution that will lower latency and cost, such as GlobalDots, will have a significant positive impact on business.
