what do companies need for successful migration?
JOURNEY TO THE CLOUD
Outsourcing large volumes of data and software applications to the cloud has become common practice in most large companies, and cloud computing has largely replaced the labour and cost-intensive operation of in-house server infrastructure. Nevertheless, some companies – particularly small and medium-sized ones – are standing firm on the principle of having their own physical IT infrastructure and refusing the Internet-based possibilities of “Infrastructure as a service” (IaaS).

Secure bandwidth and reduce costs
SRG SSR wishes to ensure that the required bandwidth is available for playing media files (video and audio streaming) during brief peak usage periods and major events (e.g. Football World Championships or Olympic Games).

Thanks to a revolutionary solution, SRG SSR can now use multiple services at the same time, thus reducing costs.
