Brainsonic wählt CDNetworks zum Beschleunigen und Streamen von Rich-Media-Content an Endbenutzer in aller Welt

CDNetworks, das einzige multinationale Content Delivery Network (Inhalt-Bereitstellungsnetzwerk) mit umfangreicher Kenntnis des lokalen Marktes und der Infrastruktur in China wurde vom Anbieter digitaler Software-as-a-Service-Inhalte Brainsonic ausgewählt. Die Lösungen zur Web- und Medienbeschleunigung von CDNetworks werden verwendet, um den digitalen Content lokaler und globaler Marken über das Internet bereitzustellen und Kunden unabhängig von ihrem Standort schnell und effizient anzusprechen.

„CDNetworks ist ein bevorzugter Content Delivery Network-Anbieter für unsere Kunden, da das Unternehmen einen zuverlässigen, hochwertigen Service und erweiterte Dienstleistungen wie GeoIP und Cloud DNS bietet”, so Julien Fauvel, Business Director der Einheit für Plattformen bei Brainsonic. „Mit CDNetworks bietet Brainsonic eine nahtlose Lösung zu einem Drittel der Kosten, die einem Kunden entstehen würden, wenn er seinen eigenen Content Delivery Network Provider wählen würde. Wir freuen uns, unseren Kunden Kosteneinsparungen bieten zu können und gleichzeitig ein hohes Serviceniveau zu wahren.“

Nach der Gründung der Unternehmens 2003 beschäftigt Brainsonic mehr als 120 Mitarbeiter an seinem Hauptsitz in Paris. Durch die Kombination von Video, sozialen Netzwerken und TV bietet Brainsonic mehr als 200 Unternehmen digitale Marketing- und Kommunikationslösungen, einschließlich L’Oreal, Boucheron, Lanvin, Dell, Inra, Radio France, Groupama und EDF.

Aufgrund der wachsenden Nachfrage nach lokalisiertem Live Rich Media Content, der über mehrere Plattformen, Schnittflächen, Geräte und digitale Formate geliefert wird, benötigten die Kunden von Brainsonic ein Content Delivery Network, das die Spitzennachfrage (über 1000 Benutzer gleichzeitig) bedienen und hohe Verfügbarkeit und Leistung sowie problemlose Skalierbarkeit erbringen kann, um den Effekt zu optimieren. Darüber hinaus haben es sich zahlreiche Marken (darunter Luxuswaren, Wein und Spirituosen, Gesundheitsprodukte und andere) zum Ziel gesetzt, Asien zu erreichen. Daher hat ein Content Delivery Network mit einer starken Präsenz in Ländern wie China grundlegende Bedeutung.

Gleichzeitig musste es möglich sein, die Softwarelösungen von Brainsonic nahtlos in den Content Delivery Network Service zu integrieren, um eine zentrale Lösung zu bieten, mit der Kunden ihre digitalen Wertgegenstände, einschließlich Fotos, Videos und Dokumente problemlos verwalten und veröffentlichen können.

Mit der Integration des Cloud Load Balancer von CDNetwork in das Sortiment erweitert Brainsonic in Zukunft die Anzahl der verwendeten Dienstleistungen. Er bietet Brainsonic die Flexibilität, seine Lieferstrategie für Inhalte zu verwalten, indem die Richtlinien für die Content-Bereitstellung auf der Grundlage von Echtzeitbedingungen und Benutzerzielen spezifiziert werden.

Jeff Kim, Präsident und Chief Operating Officer für ganz Amerika und EMEA bei CDNetworks, gab an: „Mit lokaler Expertise und Zweigstellen auf sechs Kontinenten, einschließlich der aufstrebenden Märkte, bietet CDNetworks Kunden auf globaler Ebene Web- und Medienbeschleunigung. Die Webbeschleunigung von CDNetworks ermöglicht es Unternehmen wie Brainsonic, schnell und zuverlässig Anwendungen und Content von einer Cloud- oder zentraler Infrastruktur an Benutzer in aller Welt zu liefern. Endbenutzern wird eine unvergleichliches Erlebnis geboten.“

MapDB is very fast and supports an agile approach to data, allowing developers to construct flexible schemas to exactly match application needs and tune performance, durability and caching for specific requirements.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
