A media company with thousands of hours of live event and studio programming across platforms needed to streamline its infrastructure to meet grueling demands for content delivery. Using HPE Data Center Automation products, this company was able to create digital content delivery, spanning multiple distribution channels and requirements for a robust IT infrastructure.
Running full speed into the digital age, this brand has made it a priority to increase the delivery of digital services. This required dramatic reduction in time to market via software development, but to do so they needed to rethink the traditional approach comprised of manual server builds.
This company developed a platform, used for rapid and fully automated deployment of software and applications. It helps to bridge the gap between the operations staff and software developers. Using HPE Software, they were able to build a Platform as a Service (PaaS). PaaS enabled IT to provision new applications or database servers with required dependencies in a single catalog item checkout. This increased speed for releases without inflating staffing needs, while reducing environment delivery to developers from two weeks to less than one hour. Data Center Automation saved an average of 50 hours per week in IT operations including deployment, VM updates, and database administration; allowing the IT team to focus on its strength of coding and creating new applications. HPE and the HPE Partner created the opportunity for us to complete our platform and development capabilities and meet our goal to speed up our development process.
