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.

More about CDN

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

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.
