Peer5


Peer5 Description

Peer5 is a peer-to-peer or p2p CDN, which means that for the distribution of content they redirect traffic from user to user. This also means that they do not have their own servers to distribute content from. As a result, a p2p CDN functions differently from a regular CDN. The best use case scenarios are larger livestreams, and/or very localized content. For a closer look at how p2p CDNs work please read this article.

With offices in California and Tel Aviv, Peer5 has built a a p2p CDN that is infinitely scalable, and only uses JavaScript to function. Peer5 uses WebRTC to distribute its content. The Peer5 service is an addition to a standard (multi)CDN setup, but doesn’t replace it. Peer5 also has native integrations with various video players including, but not limited to: Video.js, JWPlayer, Flowplayer, and Kaltura. The infrastructure runs on Google Cloud, Amazon WebServices, and Microsoft Azure to make it more reliable. The content on the streams is divided in chunks and later reconstructed to make the delivery from the p2p structure and edge server easier to balance.
