Our expertise for your entertainment offering
Content Delivery Network for fast delivery
Get your media content to your customers via a CDN that is close to them and take the performance pressure off your servers. We cooperate with two strong partners who store their content at globally distributed nodes - Akamai and Level 3. This allows content to be delivered very quickly and means you use less bandwidth, which also reduces your costs.
Excellent network connectivity
Our multi-redundant backbone with 250 Gbit/s bandwidth and direct connection to important European junctions ensures that your applications are always available and accessible. Depending on your unique needs, we focus on high bandwidth or low latencies, e.g. for interactive streaming.
Managed Cluster Services for high availability
With Managed Cluster Services, you and your users can benefit from up to 99.99% guaranteed availability by allowing a remaining server to immediately and automatically perform all services in the event of a failure.
Load balancers for distributed demand
Do you have the next viral video or chart topper? We distribute the demand load to different servers using a load balancer to ensure your infrastructure does not stutter, even in case of extreme load peaks.
Media & Entertainment success story:
When it comes to our hosting providers we attach great importance to a fast connection as well as hardware and networks with high availability. We do not want to make our small users wait a long time to see their desired content. Christoph Weber, Head of Application Development & Internet Technology
