How it Works

Cache Simple's On Demand Streaming is based on reverse proxy technology where content is drawn on the platform only when end users request content. Rather than deploying your multimedia files on a streaming server, you simply host your multimedia files on an HTTP Web server. When an end user requests a piece of streaming content, the end user is directed towards the nearest available edge streaming server. The edge server makes a determination as to whether or not it has the content item. It the edge server does have the content; the server will immediately begin to stream that content to the end user. In the event that the edge server does not have the content, the edge server will initiate an HTTP byte range request to retrieve the content from the HTTP Web server (or Cloud Storage repository). The multimedia file is requested via TCP to ensure a lossless copy of the stream to the edge server while, simultaneously, it is streamed to the end user over UDP or TCP - depending on what protocol the end user supports.
