The Hindu Group Re-innovates it’s IT with Netmagic’s Public Cloud ServicePosted On : March 03,2017
The Hindu Group of Publications had a centralized IT setup at its datacentre at Chennai, running multiple instances of databases and flavours of operating systems on a host of Sun Solaris and IBM AIX systems. The websites, the content management systems and all the other related applications resided on the company datacentre. The printing centres that have been publishing the dailies and magazines at 17 locations accessed systems at the central location over high-speed data connections.
“Since this was a four-year-old setup, the primary problem we began facing was the agile response of our systems. In fact, whenever there was a breaking news or an event of considerable significance, our online presence experienced substantial viewership surges. It was getting increasingly difficult for us to manage the bandwidth and system response to keep up with the demand. We had to then look out for an apt solution,” recalls Krishnamoorthy D, Senior General Manager (IT), The Hindu Group of Publications (KSL).
