At 3Crowd have been working furiously over the last month on the development of our first two services. The whole team has been dedicated to delivering on our mission of helping companies reduce costs, deliver, and scale their network applications through a healthy ecosystem for data delivery.
With our first services – CrowdMonitor and CrowdDirector, we’re giving the world just a tiny view of the foundation we’re building to enable a new type of Content Delivery System. We are using the idea of a crowd or crowd-sourcing to leverage multiple CDNs that can be monitored, managed and deployed as one single service.
CDNs have been an integral part of the vitality of video on the Net, but we think they are starving the next generation of innovation. The natural evolution of this marketplace has favored the content distributors but the market needs to continue its evolution into a more balanced relationship.
|CrowdMonitor and CrowdDirector will give content owners the power to know what’s happening with their content and the tools to dynamically manage their assets. They will have significant implications on performance, vendor flexibility and costs and not only impact the business of current content providers, but also re-orient the economics and invite a new generation of providers to participate in the market.|
We have been thoughtful about how we are creating this ecosystem and have been working on it for a while. If we do our job right, Internet streaming will be more affordable than traditional broadcast systems and together will have success.
