OpenCDN - Content Delivery Network

  •        4628

OpenCDN aims at the development of an application-level Content Delivery Network, suitable for replication and splitting of live and recorded multimedia content. It uses Relay technology, which splits incoming media packets for each downstream flow. Media distribution is hierarchically arranged among participating Nodes, coordinated by a centralized control unit.

It could deliver of Live Streaming contents to millions of viewers. Its development is based on Apple Darwin Streaming Server.

You can find a version of this documentation that is searchable and also easier to navigate at are many ways to run high availability with PostgreSQL; for a list, see the PostgreSQL Documentation.

governor - Runners to orchestrate a high-availability PostgreSQL

Compose are no longer maintaining Governor as an active project. We are pleased to say that Governor seeded the Patroni project which Compose has now adopted as their HA solution. We recommend it to anyone seeking similar functionality to Governor. We have archived the project on GitHub; you are free to use it and fork it, but we will not be accepting issues or pull requests.There are many ways to run high availability with PostgreSQL; here we present a template for you to create your own custom fit high availability solution using etcd and python for maximum accessibility.

skuld - Distributed task tracking system.

Skuld is (or aims to become) a hybrid AP/CP distributed task queue, targeting linear scaling with nodes, robustness to N/2-1 failures, extremely high availability for enqueues, guaranteed at-least-once delivery, approximate priority+FIFO ordering, and reasonable bounds on task execution mutexing. Each run of a task can log status updates to Skuld, checkpointing their progress and allowing users to check how far along their tasks have gone. Skuld combines techniques from many distributed systems: Dynamo-style consistent hashing, quorums over vnodes, and anti-entropy provide the highly-available basis for Skuld's immutable dataset, including enqueues, updates, and completions. All AP operations are represented by Convergent Replicated Data Types (CRDTs), ensuring convergence in the absence of strong consistency. CP operations (e.g. claims) are supported by a leader election/quorum protocol similar to Viewstamped Replication or Raft, supported by additional constraints on handoff transitions between disparate cohorts.

Squid - HTTP reverse proxy optimizes web delivery

Squid is a caching proxy for the Web supporting HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and more. It reduces bandwidth and improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages. Squid has extensive access controls and makes a great server accelerator. Cached content means data is served locally and users will see this through faster download speeds with frequently-used content.

HAProxy - The Reliable, High Performance TCP/HTTP Load Balancer

HAProxy is a fast and reliable solution offering high availability, load balancing, and proxying for TCP and HTTP-based applications. It is particularly suited for web sites crawling under very high loads while needing persistence or Layer7 processing. Supporting tens of thousands of connections is clearly realistic with todays hardware.

nuster - A web caching proxy server based on HAProxy

Nuster is a simple yet powerful web caching proxy server based on HAProxy. It is 100% compatible with HAProxy, and takes full advantage of the ACL functionality of HAProxy to provide fine-grained caching policy based on the content of request, response or server status. Nuster is very fast, some test shows nuster is almost three times faster than nginx when both using single core, and nearly two times faster than nginx and three times faster than varnish when using all cores.

FlowPlayer - Flash video player

Flowplayer is an Open Source video player for the web. Embed the video streams into your web pages. User will get rich media experience by viewing video streams from your site. Player could be extended with Flash plug-ins, JavaScript plug-ins or Streaming plug-ins. Give a new look and feel to the player by extending it.


Pegasus is a distributed key-value storage system developed and maintained by Xiaomi Cloud Storage Team, with targets of high availability, high performance, strong consistency and ease of use. The original motivation of this project is to replace Apache HBase for users who only need simple key-value schema but require low latency and high availability. It is based on the open source rDSN framework, and uses modified RocksDB as underlying storage engine. The consensus algorithm it uses is PacificA. Unlike Bigtable/HBase, a non-layered replication archiecture is adopted in pegasus in which an external DFS like GFS/HDFS isn't the dependency of the persistent data, which benefits the availablity a lot. Meanwhile, availablity problems in HBase which result from Java GC are totally eliminated for the use of C++.

libsourcey - C++14 evented IO libraries for high performance networking and media based applications

LibSourcey is a collection of cross platform C++14 modules and classes that provide developers with an arsenal for rapidly developing high performance network based p2p and media streaming applications. Think of it as the power and performance of libuv combined with the features of FFmpeg, OpenCV and WebRTC, all integrated with the ease and readability of the stl (C++ Standard Library). Event-based IO — Core modules are built on top of libuv (the underlying C library that powers nodejs) and use event-based asynchronous IO throughout to maximize performance and minimize concurrency reliance for building mission critical native and server side apps.

Kaltura - Video Platform
