RadioShop is a sound design specialist with offices in Montpellier, Paris and Shanghai.

Solution deployed at OVH





RadioShop started off with just one dedicated server, then 2, then 3, and it quickly found itself running a cluster of servers that required considerable time and effort to manage and maintain in terms of hardware failures, OS updates, attack mitigation, etc. However, in the words of the company's founder and CTO Thomas Bergerot, "our job isn't to manage servers. To be specific, as a programmer I make much better use of my skills when developing new elements for our customers' sound environments." This is precisely why RadioShop turned to the OVH Dedicated Cloud: the customer benefits from an easy-to-run production environment and guaranteed high availability, and OVH manages the hardware. "Every evening, 7,000 shops all over the world connect to our infrastructure to download their playlists for the next day. Internet connections in shops are generally quite poor and consumed for the most part by electronic payment systems. We therefore have a fairly limited timeslot during which we can distribute playlists, so it's imperative that our infrastructure is available during this time."
