Abstract [en]

This thesis evaluates and presents streaming server solutions in terms of price and performance with focus on delivering high quality video movies over broadband. The general results that have been found are that Darwin Streaming Server for Linux is recommended for a distributed solution with many nodes in the network where large distribution cost per movie is acceptable, Darwin Streaming Server for Windows is not recommended and Windows Media 9 Series is recommended in distributions where few servers can be used in the streaming network and low cost per delivered object is highly desirable.

Abstract [sv]

Rapporten presenterar en utvärdering av streaming server lösningar med avseende på pris och prestanda. Fokus ligger på att utvärdera möjligheterna att streama hög kvalitets video över bredband. De generella resultaten är att Darwin Streaming Server för Linux är rekommenderad för en distribuerad lösning som kräver många noder i nätverket och höga distributionskostnader är acceptabla. Darwin Streaming Server för Windows är inte rekommenderad och Windows Media 9 Series rekommenderas när få streaming servrar kan användas och där låga distributionskostnader är viktiga.
