CDN projects by Jet-Stream
Projects and milestones
Jet-Stream has been involved in more CDN projects than most other vendors have deployed together. We have over 15 years of hands-on experience with CDN challenges, pitfalls and business cases. We have learned how some CDN technologies are limiting customers so we invented better technologies. We have experience with projects from a telecom operators view, but even more importantly also from a system integrator and content owners view. We have learned why some CDN business cases have failed and why others have succeeded, and therefore we can better advise our customers. As the described projects below demonstrate, Jet-Stream has unique experience with CDNs from both ends of the spectrum: from operated CDNs to licensed CDN technologies and any hybrid solution in between.

StreamingMedia reviews the new StreamZilla
“Most CDNs that call themselves global “with a strong European presence” are simply not really European CDNs.”
“If you are looking for a European solution spanning many of the European borders and offering deep penetration into that footprint you can quickly narrow the list down to include really just one provider: Streamzilla.”
“…close quality control end to end, and under that lead they have more than reached critical mass and have become the “go to” home-grown CDN in Europe.”
“While many of the CDNs have diverged into a range of services, StreamZilla has kept it’s eye firmly on the single sector that was always going to be the most demanding.”
“Check out Streamzilla’s fresh and funky new website and take advantage of their trial to test them out. As far as
“made in Europe” is concerned, Streamzilla is a flagship and goes to show that it’s not only U.S. companies that can lead the market in this game.”

The all new StreamZilla
Who said CDNs were becoming a commodity?
StreamZilla, our pan-EU streaming CDN just released a brand new website, with many new services and features. In the past months, our StreamZilla team has been working on an array of improvements and innovations. StreamZilla started in 2004 and quickly became Europe’s leading streaming service provider and now enters it’s fourth generation. StreamZilla is a great showcase for our VideoExchange CDN technology. Popular, fast growing, scalable, premium and last but not least: always profitable. Commoditized CDNs can only compete on price. StreamZilla offers competitive rates but competes on innovation and service.

Major upgrade for StreamZilla
StreamZilla, the leading pan-EU streaming CDN, finished a major platform upgrade last week. In the past three months, all the hardware has been refreshed with new, even more powerful servers. All servers have been migrated to new racks as well. And additional capacity has been deployed. The delivery capacity has been doubled because StreamZilla expects that OTT and mobile content is going to drive growth in the upcoming years.
Because the StreamZilla CDN is a large dynamic cloud, customers were not affected by the upgrades and migrations. All upgrades and migrations were done as planned, kudos to our engineers and the engineers of our housing partners!
The major infrastructure upgrade investment was financed by StreamZilla itself, the company has been profitable since the start and has many key loyal customers, many of them have recently renewed their long term contracts.
StreamZilla has been a green CDN since 2007. The new infrastructure brings even more efficiency to the already highly optimized CDN. The new servers need less cooling and bring more power. Thanks to our parallelization technology, the StreamZilla infrastructure is highly densified, we can use all available resources much more efficiently.
Thanks to our VDO-X software, StreamZilla is able to bring down the number of heavy core servers with large storage facilities and can use more smaller bursting servers with a very low physical, power and cooling footprint. And the VDO-X software eliminates the need for power hungry overhead hardware like large storage vaults, load balancers, PoP heads, DNS servers and appliances.
StreamZilla has always been a competitively priced service, especially when you look at the premium features that are being offered: a pan-EU network that bypasses the Web for better performance over other CDNs, integrated support for all popular streaming technologies instead of a limited number of pseudo solutions, an advanced integrated management service, advanced streaming management features, advanced workflow integration API’s and professional support.
The new infrastructure -with it’s improved efficiency- allows StreamZilla to offer even smarter and more premium streaming CDN products and services to the professional streaming industry in Europe. We are working on new products and services behind the scenes which will be published on a brand new website soon. Stay tuned!
