Enterprise XR

Solution Overview

Enterprise Deployment Solution for XR Applications

DIRECT for Enterprise XR is the result of over a decade of game deployment experience working with Unreal, Unity, CryEngine and Lumberyard, as well as proprietary and open-source game engines.  While many Enterprise XR applications are built with game development technologies,  the similarities to the game business end there.  Enterprise-level requirements for deploying high-value application content in a secure manner to only authorized users & target systems.  DIRECT for Enterprise XR combines our robust game deployment technology used in DIRECT for Games & Consumer XR with the additional features that enterprise IT and development teams need.

DIRECT Saves Time
Eliminate time spent developing and maintaining multiple tools, scripts, infrastructure and release libraries for your XR application. A single script easily integrates DIRECT with the existing build process.   You have the option of keeping your high-value content on-premise or stored at AWS. Using an API, you can manage and control orchestration of your pipeline any way you want.

Made for Continuous Delivery
DIRECT speeds up testing and development by providing a production-ready infrastructure environment for internal teams and partners.  You will have a pipeline designed to push any release to production at any time.

Enterprise Security and Integrations 
DIRECT for Enterprise XR includes options for on-premise storage, AES encryption, enterprise identity, and audit trails.  See the Compare Solutions matrix for the full list of Enterprise XR features and integrations.

Features Description
Intelligent File Transfer
Download Management User Controls Provide options to choose save location and pause, resume or cancel a download, along with real-time performance on throughput and write speed.
Guaranteed Data Integrity Every byte is validated using a secure hash algorithm (SHA) to ensure it exactly matches data in the master repository.
Automatic Error Recovery Internet errors from HTTSs, DNS, faulty routers and dropped packets are automatically remediated without end user interruption.
Delivery via Global CDN Optimized for high performance delivery via CDN.
Multiple Data Repositories Specify any number of repositories per release for flexibility in how, when new file packages are deployed and updated.
CDN Optimized Data Format Files and packages are transformed to a file format that is optimized for fastest delivery via CDN and eliminate CDN propogation errors.
High Performance Multi-threaded Downloads Multipe simultaneous HTTP and I/O threads parallelize download and write operations to minimize download and update times.
Data Compression Data is compressed on ingest and decompressed on the fly during the download to achieve data transfer savings of 5-40% and reduce download times to target systems.
Byte Level Delta Updates - Cloud Reduce update times and CDN usage with RFC 3284 compliant delta updates generated quickly and automatically using AWS compute.
Byte Level Delta Updates - On Premise Create RFC 3284 compliant delta updates on premise. Works in conjunction with AES encryption to secure data before it leaves your environment.
Custom Global Storage Footprint Ensure high performance downloads for low concurrent demand use cases. Strategically preposition content close to target systems on a storage platform directly connected to many last-mile networks
Data Security
CDN Token Authentication Protect content on the CDN from unauthorized access by securing content URLs.
HTTPS Data Delivery Deliver data securely over HTTPS with a global CDN.
Geo-IP Blocking Restrict access to URLs from specific geo locations by IP address.
