Further Considerations for Your Technology Team
Having worked with specialty testing companies and many of the world’s largest companies, Qumu maintains a set of automated test scripts that can simulate your particular network model:
Server-based model—For private content distribution networks (CDNs) using a server-based proxy/caching/streaming model, testing software can inject the test load directly into networks to simulate edge server load.
Peer-assisted delivery model—For customers with a private software CDN based on a peer-assisted delivery model, silent testing tools are used to test metrics from individual peering clients.
