When it comes to services and features, some are commodities, such as video streaming, while others have the potential to be huge market disruptors. Video streaming is a fiercely competitive market that’s become a penny business, much like the supermarket industry. Volume is the name of the game, and if a startup doesn’t stream in significant volume, then sales and profits suffer.
It’s no secret that when it comes to high volume streaming, price/GB tends to race towards zero, especially with so many competitors providing the same service. Because of this, many companies try hard to provide a suite of features to go along with streaming, so that they can lift the price/GB across the board.
And then we have the caching part of the business. Although caching is not in the same predicament as streaming, it’s slowly headed in that direction. Again, no surprises there. That leads to the question, what products or services are at the opposite end of the streaming spectrum with higher profit potential? The answer lies in the the CDN Value Chain.
