German Broadcast Company Runs Production Environment on Geo-distributed Private Cloud Using Kubernetes

The competitive edge in broadcasting requires velocity in media creation and resiliency in media repositories. Scalability is critical. Serving 45 million households with 120,000 hours of programming each year, with more than 1 billion monthly online video views and 14 TV channels, and data rates growing upwards of 100TB per month, established European broadcast company, ProSiebenSat.1, needed a cost effective and efficient private cloud solution to replace technical silos for the media enterprise. Content production, storage, and distribution of data across ProSiebenSat.1 networks and business partner outlets now run on a single Unified Content Platform that leverages a Kubernetes based compute environment along with NetApp’s Trident, SolidFire, and StorageGRID products to provide the critical storage capabilities.

The Unified Content Platform will not merely replace existing systems, but actually improve our content production and delivery workflows.

Jan Ekman Senior System Engineer, ProSiebenSat.1

Using private cloud architecture with object storage, ProSiebenSat.1 manages multiple essential workloads in their Kubernetes environment, including transcoding, web servers, relational and nonrelational databases. Trident and NetApp Solidfire, designed for cloud block storage use cases, facilitate block storage in this cloud native environment, which makes internal development far more efficient. StorageGRID provides consolidated object storage for container image repositories, content archive, and live transcoding, along with a backup workload for the block storage environment, all on the same cluster, which is geodistributed to two locations within Germany.

To forge business continuity and success across their broadcast enterprise while increasing resiliency of their media repository, ProSiebenSat.1 found its answer in a private cloud, leveraging the NetApp portfolio.
