Silence is not always golden - especially for broadcast media organisations
Broadcast media organisations need to communicate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Broadcast network infrastructure is a mission critical environment, particularly when a single instance of system downtime and radio/tv silence could potentially result in a huge loss of advertising revenue. No news station wants to miss their ‘breaking news’ exclusive due to system downtime, not to mention damaging listener/viewer loyalty and reputation.
In other words, they don’t want to be the topic of news rather than the provider of news!
Leading broadcast organisations rely on everRun and ftServer to:
♥ protect broadcast network infrastructure – even a minute of downtime cannot be tolerated;
♥ protect advertising revenues;
♥ safeguard reputation;
♥ ensure listener and viewer loyalty;
♥ eliminate need for specialised hardware;
♥ reduce hardware footprint;
♥ eliminate need for manual failover procedures by technical staff.
Stratus fault tolerant solutions are endorsed by ENCO, the world leader in audio playout & automation solutions.
everRun has been an absolute breeze since we installed it. Just knowing the system will stay up and running if one of the servers had a problem is very reassuring. We had 6 discrete boxes and felt it was inevitable that one would randomly crash at some point. Having virtualised and put everything onto two servers, supported and protected by everRun, means there is significantly less likelihood of anything going wrong. We even needed to do a little reconfiguration work whilst we were live on air but everRun didn’t skip a beat. It’s absolutely solid, working 24/7.
