123 Million Users – and We Still Didn’t Miss a Beat

Aggregion has developed a platform for the specific purpose of licensing content and tracking licences on the way from copyright holders to distributors, resellers, and end users. This unique solution is designed to meet the most demanding modern standards and makes no use of third party software that has not been optimised for DRM or that might fail at peak loads when user demand is the greatest.

To verify Aggregion’s performance at peak loads, we decided to load test the system in collaboration with Intel’s engineers. Once the system was deployed on servers made available by Intel – the world’s leading producer of processor chips – we monitored its performance in different situations and optimising internal processes. The results were impressive indeed. The system proved itself capable of serving up to 123 million users daily, maintaining server response time at a comfortable level.



How the Tests were Run

Engineers from our two companies came together to simulate situations where system loads would be highest. We used interactive content from some of the world’s largest copyright holders as data for the test.

It is a special feature of Aggregion that every content copy received from the system is encrypted using a long code, which is unique to a particular user. The parameters of the user’s PC or smartphone and a number of other unique identifiers are taken into account when generating the keys. Additionally, the system generates a sufficient number of documents in real time, which, as a rule, has a serious impact on performance.

As part of the testing program, the Azbuka (ABC) package for accessing interactive digital textbooks was deployed on the servers. To generate external server loads, we simulated simultaneous downloading and viewing of digital textbooks of several gigabytes each.



Equipment Used for Testing

You could say that Aggregion is an Intel-oriented platform, and a substantial part of its functionality is only possible due to the capabilities offered by Intel’s processors. For this testing program, we used Intel Xeon E5-26xxv3-based servers with 16-32 GB of RAM running Windows 2012R2 and RedHat Linux. IntelXeonE5-26xxv3-based server processors with up to 35 GB of cache memory have been specifically developed for storage and computational systems and networks. They offer impressive speeds and energy efficiency, which helps support larger computational models and increase the speed of iteration.

IntelXeonE5-26xxv3 chips have been optimised for the needs of cloud services and telecommunication solutions. Every socket has up to 18 cores and an LLC cache of up to 45 MB, and supports DDR4 memory modules, which substantially improve performance.

The large number of cores and DDR4 architecture proved beneficial in cache memory tests. With IntelXeonE5-26хх3, we achieved transmission speeds in excess of 450 GB/s. That made a critical difference for cryptography tasks, securely encrypting content before transmitting it to the user. High-performance data processing at this stage is one of the crucial requirements that copyright holders make of any system.

Compared to its predecessors, IntelXeonE5-26хх3 has 50% more cores and cache memory. It also supports additional high-performance functionality, such as Intel (R)AVX2 and Intel QPI. The PSPC technology dynamically adjusts power supply to each of the cores. All this innovation helps achieve a 220% productivity increase across a wide range of loads.



Test Results

Joint testing conducted by Intel and Aggregion personnel indicated that the system is well suited to handling 123 million users without crashing. We have set a productivity record for applications offered by the largest of copyright holders on the Aggregion platform.

Aggregion’s software can spread the load across all the available cores and thus make full use of the computing power offered by all multicore processors. The processor has sufficient technical capacity for that, and sufficient cache definitely helps too. Additionally, as our tests made abundantly clear, what matters is not only the number of cores, but proper software optimisation as well. Working with Intel, we have developed a way to efficiently distribute the load, achieving substantial performance gains.

Data compression before transmission proved to be successful across different types of content and communications channels, because Aggregion’s platform has been optimised to take full advantage of servers with a large number of processing cores. The processor aced a number of tests with large virtual projects deployed on our platform. Not once did we experience any capacity shortage.

The system also has quite a lot of spare capacity and may easily be scaled up, primarily by adding more servers.



123 Million Isn’t the End of It!

Aggregion’s platform may be deployed in its entirety on a number of servers. Alternatively, a stand-alone group of servers may be used to run any specific part of the system. Aggregion may also allocate wider channels to particular projects.

The platform can handle not just audio, video, and digital books, but also games, applications, and other content. A wide range of customisable licensing parameters that copyright holders can set substantially expands the choices available to them and helps build DLM into virtually any type of content. Such an approach is also suitable for licensing games, which bring in significant sums of money these days. Aggregion will live up to its promise every time, from the moment the new game, movie, or album is released. Our platform is widely used in the CIS countries and elsewhere worldwide. Jump on!
