Why It Matters
Since the introduction of cross-platform viewing, video architectures have evolved from monolithic TV Everywhere implementations to hybrid cloud platforms with virtualized infrastructure. Firstlight Media is spearheading a next-generation architecture – Gen5 – that is designed to build and run scalable applications in the cloud.
Gen5 harnesses the power of cloud-native technologies, including containers, microservices, a service mesh, APIs, and immutable infrastructure. The technology stack provides significantly better performance, a modular approach for feature expansion, continuous delivery for rapid iteration, and built-in scalability, observability and security. Gen5 is a future-proof strategy that meets the demands of high concurrency, low latency, and resiliency expected of OTT video, while optimizing cloud infrastructure spend.
