Content delivery network (CDN)


QL Server can operates through content delivery networks (CDN) guaranteeing scalability for thousands of players downloading simultaneously from a platform within a short period of time.

The use of a CDN improves performances on interstate or international deployments. The players always download the content closer to their geographic localization.

Note: The maximum number of players downloading simultaneously is independent from the amount of players the QL platform can effectively manage. It is quite possible that a determined configuration can support up to 10 times more players than the indicated number, because generally a platform is shared by several clients who do not necessarily all download at the same time.
QL player features a queuing system. If your server has to handle a higher number of downloads and reach its maximum capacity, QL software will implement a queuing system for players beyond the maximum capacity of your platform.
