Seamless streaming experience enabled by a futureproof architecture
No solution is complete without a rock-solid technological foundation. The systems that power OSN’s functionalities are designed for high availability and snappy performance, which is a crucial user experience question in the case of a streaming provider that receives a sudden surge in traffic at every popular content release.
Given the limited bandwidth of internet services in the MENA region compared to other regions, optimizing performance across all platforms posed a significant challenge for our tech teams. However, we successfully tackled this challenge and achieved the desired results.
Snappiness is provided by careful API design, broad reliance on industry-leading content delivery networks, and by moving computations as close to the customers as possible to the edge of the internet. The systems build heavily upon public cloud infrastructure that allows automatic scaling of the services to keep hosting costs at bay.
