The following examples illustrate how Open Connect deployments can be configured for resiliency and maximum benefit to the customer.
The following diagram shows an example of an OCA that is embedded in a partner network, in conjunction with SFI peering which is used to provide additional resiliency and to enable nightly content fill and updates.
In contrast, the next diagram shows an example of SFI (peering) without the deployment of embedded OCAs in the partner network. In this scenario, traffic is delivered to end users via SFI from Netflix appliances that are located in local IXPs, to avoid both the cost and congestion that is associated with transit.
Failover scenarios for embedded deployments
The following diagram illustrates a scenario where an ISP partner has two embedded OCAs deployed in two different sites.
In the next diagram, the embedded appliance on Site 1 is down, but the embedded appliance on Site 2 is up. Traffic is re-routed and served from Site 2.
In the final diagram, the embedded appliances on both Site 1 and Site 2 are down. Traffic is re-routed and served from Netflix IX appliances.
