Lowest Marginal Cost Structure
By decoupling content delivery from storage across multiple elements, physical infrastructure costs are reduced by using lower cost delivery servers and HDD-based storage - leading to savings of 60% or more.
Simpler, Automated Operations
By eliminating redundant storage within each cluster and extending software-defined storage across sites, storage can be collapsed into a single flat tier. For CDNs, this means that all content management operations (add, modify, and purge) need only be performed once.
Reduce Internal Bandwidth Utilization
Platina flattens the existing tiered structure eliminating significant costs for building and maintaining costly, excess infrastructure. The single tier also reduces costly CDN related bandwidth charges for cache warming, cache misses and content updates.
Easily Differentiate Services
Decoupling storage from delivery eliminates resource contention while simultaneously associating different policies and customers to specific resources. CDNs can simultaneously serve as Edge Computing sites for new, performance-sensitive applications.
Investment Protection and Seamless Integration
Traditional CDN architectures migrate very easily to Platina’s modern architecture. Content routing logic continues to operate during a migration and preserves infrastructure investments and setup, while expansion enjoys the benefit of a lower cost, more efficient and more easily managed CDN.
