On-Demand Video of a talk at AWS re-Invent 2016
Discovery Communications is well known in broacast circles for their move the the cloud, arguably ahead of the curve. But their partnership with AWS continues and appears to have resulted in a felxibly, reliable infrastructure which has gone hand in hand with a move of Enterprise IT to the cloud.
This talk walks through Discovery’s migration of broadcast playout supporting hundreds of channels worldwide to AWS. It shows how Discovery has not only reduced their Total Cost of Ownership but also has improved their agility by launching new channels on demand. We also walk through how channel origination is being deployed in a secure, automated fashion, and with a level of high availability that exceeds what is possible in a traditional data center.
