CoreMedia Elastic Social
An overview of CoreMedia Elastic Social.
Social networks are now an integral part of the online world, with users both exerting their influence on content as well as interacting with peers and organizations. This integration demands that social networks are now considered as an extension of any company’s content ecosystem — and a critical one for those who truly want to engage with their audience.
However, as companies incorporate increasing amounts of user generated content into their online publishing mix, a new and potentially crippling challenge has emerged. The exact quantity and size of contributed data and media files can be extremely hard to predict for any given period of time. High levels of user “write” activity put a tremendous strain on typical web infrastructure.
This document explains how CoreMedia solves this problem by leveraging its extensive experience with high performance computing architectures to create one of the most scalable social software tools on the market.
