Overview - AWS Elemental Delta

This is version 2.3 of the AWS Elemental Delta documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Delta Documentation.


Delta is a video delivery platform designed to optimize the management, monetization, and distribution of video across internal and external IP networks. The platform provides a complete solution for time-shifted TV and just-in-time (JIT) video packaging while enabling real-time content delivery with advanced levels of personalization, customization, and control.

Delta can be controlled, configured, and monitored through the following interfaces.

Interface Description
Web browser via HTML Using a web browser is the easiest way to control, configure, and monitor Delta. This interface is used when a human is interacting with the server or when no automation or integration with other systems is required. We recommend Mozilla Firefox as the client browser.
Web Services REST Interface The REST-based interface supports all features of the web interface as well as automation features. For help with the Delta REST API, see the AWS Elemental Delta version 2.3 API Guide.
SNMP Interface The SNMP interface allows basic monitoring and control of the Delta system. It allows a management system to query the state of the service and content it manages.
Secure shell access Secure shell access allows you to access the system's configuration files and directory structure. The secure shell interface is provided for users who need to modify the base behavior of the Delta system or for diagnostics.
