What is a streaming server?
A streaming server enables content providers to deliver videos, audio or image files, and streams to an end user in real-time. These servers need advanced storage, memory, and network capacity to be able to store large volumes of data and deliver them to a user’s device with minimum latency. Network speeds and bandwidth are key in ensuring fast delivery, which is why streaming servers should be connected to a robust global network.
How does a streaming server work?
The mechanism behind media streaming includes a dedicated server with advanced compute resources, which is used to store multimedia files and video streams. The content is delivered via CDN, a global network that compresses data and delivers them in smaller chunks to reduce lag and prevent overload at peak times. The end user does not have to download the content locally in order to view it. Instead, they can see it on-demand from the browser.
What to consider when buying dedicated streaming server?
The success of streaming businesses depends on their ability to deliver media-intensive services with minimum latency. phoenixNAP’s dedicated servers provide bandwidth, memory, and storage resources you need to meet that goal. Architected on the industry leading processor platform, the streaming servers enable you to process even the most intensive workloads in minimum time.
Vertical CPU Scaling
phoenixNAP’s FlexServers offer a unique capability to scale CPUs with a reboot.
phoenixNAP provides 20 Gbps of DDoS protection FREE with every server.
Deploy your dedicated server on any of phoenixNAP’s five global locations.
