American Media Distribution Webcasting Services
Get your live event on the internet with webcasting services. We will provide you with fully-managed web-based webcasting solutions.
Fiber Optic lines and Web caches store popular content on servers that have the greatest demand for the content requested. this include a vast library of AMD News's original journalist content These shared network appliances reduce bandwidth requirements, reduce server load, and improve the client response times for content stored in the cache.
Server-load balancing uses one or more techniques including service based (global load balancing) or hardware based, i.e. layer 4 to 7 switches, also known as a web switch, content switch, or multilayer switch to share traffic among a number of servers or web caches. Here the switch is assigned a single virtual IP address.
Traffic arriving at the switch is then directed to one of the real web servers attached to the switch. This has the advantages of balancing load, increasing total capacity, improving scalability, and providing increased reliability by redistributing the load of a failed web server and providing server health checks. We make sure all clients get our content fresh off our AMD wire.
