Data Distribution Network using Mirroring

Advantages Of Using A Data Distribution Network using Mirroring

At EnterMedia we want to make sure that all your information is kept safe and we believe mirroring the information (as opposed to clustering) provides greater reliability, performance, and security.

In essence, the mirroring mechanism works in the following manner. 

We mirror the following three components:

  • Data: Assets, categories, library collections, and libraries.
  • Thumbnails: All thumbnails of all assets.
  • Original media: Originally uploaded media

The procedure for failover is:

  • The A and B servers are continually mirrored by-directionally
  • If the DNS Monitor detects a server is down it will change the IP address dynamically to the B server
  • Once the A server is returned online the DNS will be set back
  • The users should experience minimal distubance since the browser will auto-login as needed

Below are 6 advantages on why EnterMedia uses mirroring instead of clustering.

1. Your Server Load Will Decrease:

As a result of, strategically placed servers that form the backbone of the network the companies can have an increase in capacity and number of concurrent users that they can handle. Essentially, the content is spread out across several servers, as opposed to offloading them onto one large server.

2. Content Delivery Will Become Faster:

Due to higher reliability, operators can deliver high-quality content with a high level of service, low network server loads, and thus, lower costs. Moreover, jQuery is ubiquitous on the web. There’s a high probability that someone visiting a particular page has already done that in the past using Google DDN. Therefore, the file has already been cached by the browser and the user won’t need to download it again.

3. Segmenting Your Audience Becomes Easy:

DDNs can deliver different content to different users depending on the kind of device requesting the content. They are capable of detecting the type of mobile devices and can deliver a device-specific version of the content.

4. Lower Network Latency And Packet Loss:

End-users experience less jitter and improved stream quality. DDN users can, therefore, deliver high definition content with high Quality of Service, low costs, and low network load.

5. Higher Availability And Better Usage Analytics:

DDNs dynamically distribute assets to the strategically placed core, fallback, and edge servers. DDNs can give more control of asset delivery and network load. They can optimize capacity per customer, provide views of real-time load and statistics, reveal which assets are popular, show active regions and report exact viewing details to customers. DDNs can thus offer 100% availability, even with large power, network or hardware outages.

6. Storage And Security:

DDNs offer secure storage capacity for content such as videos for enterprises that need it, as well as archiving and enhanced data backup services.
