Anevia launches cloud-native CDN solution

Anevia has announced that it is launching a cloud-native content delivery network (CDN) solution, which will enable operators to deploy their own CDN while using its capacity to deliver high-quality services, even during peak traffic.

The new architecture for Anevia’s next-generation CDN product, NEA-CDN 5.0, is now based on cloud-native technologies to allow operators to run a CDN on premise or on public or private cloud, as well as on edge-based resources or data centre-based resources, to be completely compatible with hybrid infrastructures.

David Tencer, Product Owner, NEA-CDN, Anevia said: “Our customers have expressed a strong need for a flexible infrastructure that enables them to scale up and down as traffic demands fluctuate. We have integrated bleeding-edge, future-proof technologies, such as Kubernetes, to create a long-awaited solution that meets this need.”

With operators generally using 6% of their available CDN capacity, 94% of the capacity goes to waste as it is only used during peak traffic times. As the first CDN based on the Kubernetes infrastructure, the NEA-CDN 5.0 range enables operators to cut this waste, while still meeting peak traffic requirements, by allowing operators to scale their infrastructure up or down instantly as demand changes. At a time when operators are increasingly wanting to deploy their own CDNs, this will also allow greater control over their operational cost as well as the quality of the delivery.

To ensure viewers get the best possible experience, Anevia’s new solution enables operators to deploy all the next-generation services they need, such as live, time-shift, VOD, 4K and Ultra-Low Latency. Additionally, centralised management and an analytics platform make NEA-CDN 5.0 easy to operate.
