Application Scenarios

File processing

By deploying Function, combined with Baishan's high-performance CDN services, functions such as generating thumbnails and watermarking are provided at the edge node to reduce the pressure of the origin server and improve the image processing efficiency of the media platform. For example, generating different sizes of pictures according to different access device types to achieve dynamic processing and distribution of pictures to reduce the load for caching.

Mitigate Traffic Bursts

Utilizing the elastic capabilities of the Baishan edge cloud network, traffic bursts are mitigated to ensure easy handling of peak traffic on mobile applications and websites. It helps customers to reduce costs significantly while improving efficiency and performance. The use of Function@Edge transcoding and traffic expansion processing effectively copes with the surges of viewing traffic during a live broadcast.

Real-time Data Processing 

Supporting a variety of event source types.  Utilizing event trigger mechanism and through simple configuration, customizing process logic for real-time analysis and processing of continuous event flow and data flow, as well as an effective response to the massive data distributed processing needs such as the Internet of Things.
