Streamroot Description

Streamroot 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.

Streamroot has multiple innovations incorporated in in its ‘Streamroot DNA’ (p2p) technology. These innovations help with improving the capabilities of the p2p network, these include dynamic multi sourcing with intelligent assembling of content, as well as micro-cashing for more a more efficient network. Additionally, Streamroot are one of the first companies to offer a fixed price infrastructure.

Streamroot DNA is also already integrated with multiple other services including but not limited to, Unified Streaming and elemental for packaging, Widevine and Playready for DRM, Fastly, Level3 and Akamai for CDNs, JWPlayer, Brightcove and Flowplayer for video players, and the infrastructure on Nice People at Work for the Analytics.
