Sky News delivers 24/7 rolling news service with reliable Red Hat Virtualization


When it became clear that a re-platforming exercise was required for Sky News’ hardware infrastructure underpinning the broadcaster service, Red Hat® Virtualization was chosen for the project. Virtualization offered the flexibility needed to grow the service, deal with fluctuations in traffic and improve resiliency. Once the the new virtualized environment was in place, however, another major benefit was realised: increased time-to-innovation, which allows Sky News to be more responsive not only to breaking news stories, but also to market changes and audience demands.
