Hybrid-hosted deployments combine the scalability and flexibility of cloud servers with the performance of dedicated hosting.

Ensemble Video Cloud-Hosted DeploymentThe Ensemble Video hybrid-hosted options offer flexibility, scalability and choice. There are two hybrid-hosted models, a self-hosted master system and a cloud-hosted master system. In a hybrid-hosted deployment, the media cache server(s) dynamically fetch content on first request from the master server for immediate streaming and stores it temporarily in a cache for subsequent viewers. The master system can be installed in the cloud or on-premise, then the media cache servers are installed in your alternate location (on-premise or cloud). The hybrid-hosted deployment increases the scalability of video-on-demand streaming and enables you to reach more viewers without clogging your network.
