Discovery turns to Equinix for IOA

Discovery turns to Equinix for IOA

As part of this deal the company will consolidate up to 80% of its current IT infrastructure. This includes its back-office support systems, applications and network connectivity. More importantly it will gain access to the Equinix Media Cloud Ecosystem for Entertainment (EMCEE).

Like other media companies, Discovery is having to deal with a shift in how its customers consume content. It already has over three billion viewers for its content in more than 220 countries. A few years ago these would have been only through cable, terrestrial and satellite TV. The shift to online and on-demand consumption means it needs an infrastructure that can deliver.

According to David Duvall, Senior Vice President of Infrastructure & Support Services, Discovery Communications: “The cloud is the future for digital media and entertainment – the agility and cost advantages are immense. Once we started our digital journey, it was quickly apparent that we needed a neutral interconnect partner who would enable us to connect our entire ecosystem physically and virtually, allowing us to scale up or down to address current and future requirements. Equinix has been key to Discovery’s success with this digital transformation, and we look forward to expanding our network with Equinix as we grow our global business.”
