Media Conversion Servers
Included with Jamroom Hosting is a service that you will not find anywhere else, Media Conversion Servers
Every site running on Jamroom Hosting
is connected to our dedicated media conversion servers. What this means is any audio or video files that get uploaded to your site will be passed off to a different server for processing.
In the normal flow of things, a user uploads a video file to your site, maybe its a .wav file (or other type). In order for that video to play on all devices that exist, it needs to be converted into multiple formats. Some devices use Flash video, some use MP4, and mobiles like M4V, so those file types need to exist.
On any other hosting, the same server that delivers your website to visitors will be the one doing the processing of those video conversions. On Jamroom Hosting its a separate server.
The video file is passed to the Media Conversion Server when it is uploaded and the converted files are returned when they have finished processing.
This has the massive advantage of leaving 100% of the processing power of your server available to just deliver your website to your visitors. The result is your server can grow much bigger with the available resources it has than would otherwise be possible.
