Velocix has released new geo-redundancy features for its Origin server software to improve the fault tolerance and reliability of cloud DVR, live, and on-demand video streaming services.

The company's Origin geo-redundancy features are intended to ensure that full operational capacity is maintained in the event of a catastrophic network failure, power outage, or other fault condition that might otherwise interrupt consumer-facing video services or negatively impact revenue generation.

Craig Sinasac, vice president of development and technology at Velocix, said: "We've seen a lot of interest from service providers, especially telcos, in strengthening their disaster recovery and business continuity plans. Improving the robustness of our origin server's geo-redundancy capabilities ensures that time-critical activities, like live content acquisition and delivery, remain unaffected by a major outage in a specific geographical area. With our latest release, we have set a new benchmark for resiliency and fault tolerance, delivering a solution that meets our customers' stringent standards."

In addition to geo-redundancy, Velocix's origin server release introduces flexibility and scalability enhancements, as well as support for high dynamic range (HDR10), 4K/UltraHD, and Dolby Atmos content. The latest origin server release, version 6.0, is available now.
