Media Grid Engines (or MGEs) are Media Grid Objects of one of the following types :
The Media Grid Engines offer overlapping subsets of the functionalities listed below.
NOTE: Creating a CMGO generates a decryption ISPK, which resides with the corresponding MGO = OS. The encryption ISTP resides as part of the CMGO,and is used to authenticate requests for decryption.
Origin servers may be hosted in cloud services infrastructure or other virtualized environments. Cache and edge servers will be typically deployed on dedicated hardware subsystems or using Network Function Virtualization (NFV). These hardware subsystems must have a minimum of 2 petabytes of storage and equivalent server processing power (e.g.3.2GHz Intel Quad Core XEONs). Currently, the media grid engine software runs on Fedora 16 operating system with 8 Gigabytes of memory. The project may be ported to other Linux operating systems as deemed appropriate by the working groups. InterStream expects these servers to be deployed with 10 Gigabyte Ethernet interfaces.
