Streaming in the cloud

Wanting to improve music search times for its 1 million customers, Australian-based music streaming service Guvera moved from physical servers to the cloud in August 2013. The transition was made following an audit by Guvera CTO ,Damien King, who found the company’s hardware too costly and time intensive to support. The Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud was chosen in order to handle the large amount of information running through its IT infrastructure.
