Edgeware is a leading provider of video streaming solutions to network and service operators. The Edgeware Video Consolidation Platform(VCP) is a complete video streaming solution consisting of the Convoy Management system and Orbit streaming servers. The Orbit streaming servers are purpose designed hardware platforms which are composed of a dedicated hardware streaming engine and a purpose designed flash as a storage system. The Orbit streaming server is an accelerated HTTP streaming cache server which have up to 80 Gbps bandwidth and can stream to 128000 clients from a single rack unit. In line with the new trend of moving more and more functionalities towards a virtualized or software environment, the main goal of this thesis is to make a performance comparison between Edgeware’s Orbit streaming server and one of the best generic HTTP accelerators(reverse proxy severs) after implementing logging functionality of the Orbit on top of it. This is achieved by implementing test cases for the use cases that can help to evaluate those servers. Finally, after evaluating those proxy servers Varnish is selected and then compared the modified Varnish and Orbit to investigate the performance difference.
