Platform Development & Modernization for Major North American OTT Provider

The Challenge

A global leader in the video content streaming space needed to modernize a legacy platform while maintaining backward compatibility for its commercial customers. The legacy platform lacked modern features that would enable true OTT capabilities, video on demand (VOD) services, and local content insertion. As part of this modernization effort, the client needed to enable programmable content apps for seamless integration with other OTT content providers.

The Solution

To maintain its competitive edge, the client looked to Ness to build, deploy, scale and support its new global content delivery solution for both linear and OTT platforms. The platform was built on a scalable infrastructure leveraging AWS services EKS, ALB, RDS, Redis, WAF, Elasticsearch, S3, EC2, Lambda, AWS Inspector, AWS SSM, CloudWatch, and ECR. This enables end-to-end ownership of the cloud environments (development through production, deployment, support and ongoing optimization) and utilizes a well-architected AWS framework for operations.

The Results

Ness built a scalable, secure, and reliable infrastructure capable of supporting millions of users within a matter of months, bringing an elevated experience to hotel rooms, restaurants, hospitals, universities, and other commercial markets.
