What is redGalaxy CDN?
The redGalaxy CDN service (content delivery network) allows for the delivery of files and multimedia content to a large number of telecommunications networks subscribers. The service is delivered by clusters of distribution servers located in major domestic and foreign Internet exchange points (PLIX, TPIX, Thinx, KIX, and EPIX). Currently, the redGalaxy CDN infrastructure consists of over 200 nodes, and its maximum daily load is 400 Gbit/s, making it the largest network of this kind in Poland.
Individual servers use our proprietary DCS software DCS (Distrubuted Caching System), which has been developed since 2006. Its role is to deliver data ensuring automatic selection of the best server (in terms of proximity and load) for each service user. redGalaxy CDN nodes communicate with local routers using BGP, so they always receive up-to-date information on network topology.
redGalaxy CDN supports a wide range of protocols and multimedia formats, allowing us to handle a variety of end devices such as PCs, smartphones, tablets, and TVs for both VOD content and live streams.
