So you've discovered that serving Web content from a single location can present a serious bottleneck for site scalability, availability and performance. What's more, if your data center or ISP fails, the entire cluster is inaccessible to your customers.
To solve this problem, you've considered routing content through a Content Delivery Network (CDN), making replicated copies to push content closer to the edge and ensure your customers maintain connectivity and continuous access to digital content. But not all your content is suited to go through a CDN. And that can be expensive. We've got a better way.
A Smarter Approach for Content Distribution
Cleversafe's content distribution eliminates bottlenecks presented by single site distribution, as well as the added expense of replicated copies.
SmartRead™ assurance predicts the optimal network routes and storage nodes to most efficiently return digital content. Digital content is reassembled in segments, and for each segment, thousands—if not millions—of combinations of slices are examined to determine the best delivery path. So unlike traditional CDNs, which route users to the server, Cleversafe constantly optimizes the path to return content in real time as it is streaming.
The benefit: if a failure connection or server slow down occurs—which are common on the internet—recreation of content is routed around the failures and content delivery occurs seamlessly. Happy users. Happy administrator.
Limitless Scalability to Match End-User Demands
And, Cleversafe's solution is designed with limitless scalability in mind, particularly with an aggregate performance model.
By integrating the Accesser software directly into your applications or devices, you can distribute the read requests to the edge, enabling massively parallel reads. This avoids the chokepoints of a gateway appliance.
Cleversafe has also optimized throughput by actively tuning the TCP stack (buffer sizes and congestion control) and through massively parallel I/O resulting from distributed write and read commands across the multiple Slicestor nodes. This results in a content distribution storage solution that meets the demands of the network, while supporting future availability requirements.
