Concurrent, (NASDAQ:CCUR) , a global leader in unified content delivery and video analytics solutions, today unveiled support for new high-density edge server configurations in its latest UpShift content delivery network software release. As a unified solution, UpShift supports content delivery to any viewing device from a common platform, enabling commercial video services to be streamed to consumers at home or on the go, over fixed-line or mobile broadband networks. Concurrent’s UpShift software has been certified to operate on next generation servers featuring higher solid state storage capacities and new form factors. The additional storage capacity can be used to cache a greater amount of popular content closer to the consumer, reducing the traffic demands on the content delivery network (CDN) and improving network efficiency. Licensed multi-screen content, Internet-based over-the-top (OTT) content, and content for on-demand TV services can be cached within a single server and delivered to any screen, over any network, on demand.

“Service providers are moving aggressively to offer subscribers a richness of multi-screen video content that far surpasses OTT services like Netflix(R), Apple TV(R), and Amazon Instant Video(R),” said James Brickmeier, SVP Strategic Marketing at Concurrent. “Our newest software makes it less costly to launch very large cloud-hosted content libraries by infusing a larger amount of flexible cache capacity at the edge of the content delivery network. UpShift intelligently manages edge caches to ensure the CDN operates at peak efficiency and delivers the highest quality of experience to consumers on every device.”

Concurrent’s UpShift solution supports a variety of integrated and attached storage options in support of intelligent caching, including DRAM, solid state drives (SSD), and hard disk drive (HDD) storage. The latest software release includes support for SSD densities of up to 19 terabytes (TB) per rack unit (RU), and on-board HDD storage density of up to 36TB per RU. UpShift edge servers share cache capacity across services, making them more efficient and more capable than traditional CDN caches.

Concurrent’s UpShift software and certified hardware solutions are currently available and being shipped to customers in support of their multi-screen content delivery network deployments.
