How Cloud Wrapper works

Each time content is retrieved from the cloud, it's done so at a cost, often referred to as "egress fees." Large volumes of requests to the origin will result in soaring cloud provider charges, potentially impacting delivery performance. In extreme situations, large spikes in origin requests or traffic can even act like DDoS attacks leading to origin failure.

The Cloud Wrapper solution

Cloud Wrapper serves as a highly efficient custom caching layer that wraps around centralized cloud providers, shielding them to improve origin offload. Requests for live or on demand video content are served from Akamai, resulting in lower cloud egress charges and a more consistent, high-quality end-user experience.
