YuJa SaaS-based solutions are powered by versatile, robust and scalable cloud-hosted technology.
The Power of the YuJa Video Cloud
The YuJa Cloud is the backbone of our entire video-powered video platform including lecture capture, media management, live streaming, video conferencing, social learning and mobile video tools. Designed by engineers, scientists and PhDs with a track-record of deploying large-scale distributed systems, each tool within our products leverages the YuJa Cloud to deliver a high impact user experience.
A Fully Managed Cloud-Hosted Solution
World-Class Cloud-Based Hosting with Advanced Security, Redundancy, and Reliability
Our customer’s content and security are our #1 priority. We use world-class primary data centers hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS). We also place zones behind load-balancers to ensure redundancy and scalability. YuJa solutions runs on an attested physical environment. The AWS infrastructure is attested and certified to be highly stable, fault-tolerant, and secure.

Infrastructure That is Scalable, Attested and Secure
Unlike legacy hardware vendors who retrofitted their infrastructure to work in the cloud, the entire YuJa platform was built to leverage best-of-breed cloud architectures to improve reliability, delivery, and scalability. This enables institutions to offer affordable video solutions.
With data center availability around the world, including the US, Canada, Europe and Australia, our global infrastructure allows us to scale up and dynamically adjust to changing usage and traffic patterns. This ensures all members of your enterprise have access to video content wherever they go.
Our cloud infrastructure uses a durable video storage platform with 99.999999999% durability of objects. This means near perfect storage reliability with industry-standard checksums and cyclic redundancy checks (CRCs) to ensure impeccable storage and retrieval of data.
Elastic Cluster Architecture Enables Advanced Scalability and Fault Tolerance
YuJa’s cloud-based architecture is designed with advanced elastic scaling, load spike tolerance, and containerized sub-system redundancy. The result is a solution that is designed from the ground up to support high volume, video-at-scale production workloads. To ensure a consistent throughput, YuJa’s cloud-based infrastructure is deployed on multiple physical data center locations across several availability zones and redundant sub-systems. We also place sub-systems behind load-balancers to ensure enhanced redundancy and scalability.
Containerized Architecture for Efficient Processing and Consistent Throughput
The advanced containerized architecture with redundant sub-systems ensures that in the event of planned or unplanned hardware failures, the Video Platform can continue to operate and maintain our Service Level Agreement (SLA). The containerized architecture is built from a standardized set of Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) servers that can be swapped out and re-deployed dynamically without affecting a given sub-system’s operation or functionality.
Ability to Handle High-Volume Video Processing Workloads
Our elastic processing cluster enables our capacity to dynamically adjust to the prevailing workload without the need for any human intervention. This allows for quick processing of millions of concurrent system requests, including transcoding, transmuxing, captioning, thumbnailing and cognitive video analysis.
Responsive” Architecture Capable of Handling Spikes
Our cloud-based infrastructure is redundant across geographic zones and automatically scales during peak traffic bursts to ensure a stable experience for all users. This elastic cloud architecture ensures that there are no practical limits on maximum current viewers, maximum active streams, maximum simultaneous accesses, or storage capacity. The Video Platform’s responsiveness to handling load spikes includes:
Spikes in Viewership
Nearly instant scale-up and scale-down to ensure uninterrupted video streaming.
Spikes in Platform Access Load
Scale-up and scale-down within one hour. We also maintain significant idle server capability to ensure responsive Platform access.
Spikes in Transcoding Load
Nearly instant scale-up and scale-down with significant idle transcoding capacity to ensure efficient peak processing capabilities.
