Let’s be fair! The Digital Evolution Blog also has the right to unrestrainedly give itself to the summer hole and the related topics on some days. So today: Game of Thrones or the question, how do I set a streaming offer? Meanwhile in the seventh and therefore last season, the cheerful family series around power, murder and majesties in Germany enjoys undivided popularity around the world. Reason enough for all leading media to jump on this topic and to illuminate it from the most different angles. And, of course, a more than welcome opportunity for the pay TV station Sky, owner of broadcasting rights in Germany, to market its offer Sky Ticket forcefully. This allows customers to get a one-month access to the streaming platform for just 1 euro to keep up with the events in Westeros.
Against this background, Sky became a victim of his own success and succumbed to the curse of the good deed. The interest in the first episode of the new season was so big last Monday that Sky Ticket’s servers imitated the one or the other performer and bent the knee. As a result, Sky was in the social media, as Ernst Jünger would say, “Unter Stuhlgewittern”. In this context, it was not helpful to mention the entry on the portal with the central sentence for the series: “The winter is here … and has frozen a few lines.” The company would be well advised with regard to its successful marketing campaign to scale the IT capacities accordingly. A hybrid cloud platform solution would have intercepted the load point by integrating additional capacities from different public cloud providers quite easily. After the onslaught, the resources could have been withdrawn quite flexibly. But in hindsight you are always smarter.
But the north does not forget! Especially not with the strategy paper on the hybrid cloud platform for free download at https://www.da-rz.de/en/cloud-services/hybrid-cloud/
