Last updated 7 months ago

MediaCP Cloud Video is a white-labeled enterprise video streaming platform designed for service providers and powered by serverless technology and a global CDN.

The concept is to provide our customers with a serverless platform that will launch a business into the 21st century with Scalability, High Availability, Social Media Scheduling & Publishing, Video Analytics, Scalable Transcoding, Adaptive Bitrate, Pay-per-view, and much more.

The product is currently offered as a SaaS (software-as-a-service) hosted solution, alleviating from our clients the cost and responsibility of managing servers and infrastructure. By utilizing a SaaS model, MediaCP Cloud Video can offer highly competitive bandwidth and storage costs and allow our customers with a platform that grows with them.

Resources

Why SaaS?

  • The SaaS platform is designed so our clients can focus on the growth of their business, and not waste time managing infrastructure.
  • By providing a SaaS platform to multiple clients, we are able to leverage reduced bandwidth and storage costs through serverless technologies and CDN. We are able to deliver a pricing model that is highly competitive to other cloud video platforms.
  • Providing a highly available and high performance platform requires a lot of components working together and not only is there a larger cost associated with this, it also requires staffing resources and responsibilities to upkeep.
