One of the primary challenges facing content owners and providers is ensuring that the content they have painstakingly produced is protected, whilst being available to the end audience in a professional manner.
Simply pushing their content to a free or near-free video or audio website for delivery is normally unattractive to content producers and owners - the need to protect intellectual property and media rights in their content assets is a strong one.
At the same time, content owners need to meet flash crowds and peak demands for their content. This problem is exacerbated with social media – content can become ‘viral’ globally in minutes. Trying to anticipate demand is almost impossible.
Content owners need a broadcast quality online delivery solution that is scalable, yet allows them to protect and control their content clearly and securely.
Tibus uses a hybrid approach, in conjunction with the world’s largest Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), allowing us to store and protect content, serving it cost-effectively. Where flash crowds or on days of large visitor numbers, we use CDNs to meet the peak content demands.
We’ve deployed our approach successfully for some of the UK & Ireland’s largest and well known organisations for their ‘big days’ online:
Tibus normally combines CDNs with its Private Cloud solution to produce a solution that minimises capital spend required and is optimised for normal performance rather than the very highest peaks.
Overflows of traffic above ‘normal’ days are handled by our CDNs on an on-demand / pay per usage basis, making this a highly cost effective method of addressing the challenge of protecting content, whilst making sure it is available even on the busiest days.
These solutions are designed and delivered entirely by our experienced team, discreetly and in conjunction with our clients. A comprehensive approach to give you peace of mind for your website and content – no matter how busy your site could become.
Live streaming is done on a GB transfer basis, monthly in arrears. Hybrid Cloud + CDN solutions are based on a monthly charge, with a usage element in arrears.
Tibus is proud of its reputation for approachable and knowledgeable support.
