Our challenge was to permit to
Design and deployment of a platform that has a large storage capacity, that is quick and fast in terms of content delivery and that can transcode the contents in different formats before storing them.
We achieved this by:
- We used S3 solution for massive storage getting our costumer to have a stock at a low cost and a service guarantee of 99,9999999% besides having a high capacity (256Tb).
- P• For the challenge of achieving an efficient way of transferring and delivering the content, we have proceeded to. the integration of the Cloud Front Service (CDN) of AWS,this service guarantees the fast distribution of the contents and an integration with the S3.
- For the video processing, AWS Elastic Transcoder service With its integration with the S3 and Lambda we have been able to automate the transcoding process of the videos to the different qualities requested by our client.
- In order to have a service that allows the influx of a large number of recurring users, CloudFront and S3 tuples were used.
Costs: storage at low cost.
Fast content delivery to users
