Media and Publishers
Particularly in the age of rapid digitalisation, a high-performance and cost-effective IT system with suitably flexible infrastructures forms the basis of a successful business for media companies. This is because customers expect 24/7 availability of media content. Publishers themselves required quick and reliable access to their own content and databases. No matter how you want to use your data, from content management to providing your digital media portfolio or data analyses – your IT should provide you with cost-effective, secure support with the minimum administrative workload.
Cloud computing for your media businessTo identify the right IT strategy in the media business, you need to ask yourself a few questions of strategic importance to your business success:
- What is the safest and most reliable way of storing our data and content, and what is the associated administrative outlay?
- What is the performance level of our portal, and how do we deal cost-effectively with load peaks?
- Do we have sufficient IT resources available for data analyses and new developments, and are we using economies of scale?
- Is our website optimised for content monetisation, and are we minimizing setup times and remnant costs?
- Can we ensure the necessary technical security and compliance with data protection regulations?
- Is 'privacy shield' the right way or should it be the real data protection from a cloud provider from Germany?

Available resources – whenever and for as long as you need themThese days, data is an important asset for every media company. Analysing this data results in a recurring need for additional IT resources for a specific period of time, after which they are no longer required. With the ProfitBricks cloud solution and the special Live Virtual Scaling function, you can deploy the resources required dynamically – even on the fly – for example, if you need to analyse data in real time. If they are no longer required, you can simply switch them off again. No matter what you are planning for your business, ProfitBricks delivers flexible IT scalability that precisely meets your needs.
