Formula 1 and multi-cloud services are two things that, on first thought, may not possess too many similarities. However, there are a lot of lessons that the gambling industry can learn from motorsport – particularly when it comes to the role that multi-cloud infrastructure plays in keeping a gambling operator in “pole position”, especially around major sporting events.
In the latest instalment of the Cloud Acceleration series, which is sponsored by Pure Storage and Computacenter, we will take a look at the ways igaming firms can use cloud-based solutions to revamp their existing IT infrastructure in a cost-effective manner.
Leading the live webinar discussion is Computacenter’s Nick Gibbs, who previously worked as Trackside IT Infrastructure Engineer at Red Bull Racing and Converged Infrastructure Specialist at Mercedes-AMG Petronas.
He is joined by Fred Lherault, Field CTO EMHe EA & Emerging at Pure Storage, and Paul Nearn, Solution Leader – Platform & Hybrid IT – Computacenter.
The webinar will primarily be focused around the run-up to raceday and how Computacenter is helping customers to build software-defined, private Cloud infrastructure without impinging on performance.
The trio take a look at the transition of tools, people and processes from multiple cloud systems to one centralised multi-cloud platform – something that can sound quite daunting at first, but it is a migration that Computacenter and Pure Storage pride themselves on making easier for partners.
Overspending on cloud technologies will also be a big focus. As many companies look to tighten the purse strings and streamline business processes, data has previously shown that cloud spend has been a key consideration for many gaming companies over the past five years.
Diving deeper into these concerns, Computacenter will look at the differences between FinOps and tuning – exploring how cost optimisation requires actionable intelligence and the ways that cost control services can fit quite nicely into the services and processes that Computacenter offers to its customers.
The team’s experience within the F1 space will also be under the spotlight as they walk us through the process of preparing for a race day.
F1 Teams require the highest possible levels of performance when it comes to race days – and as you can imagine, this needs to operate faultlessly as this can ultimately impact the car and driver’s performance.
Supporting platforms should therefore be able to provide best-in-class technologies and services to ensure that members of the team can increase output and also improve analysis of previous performances.
Computacenter and Pure Storage will also walk us through the ways multi-cloud technologies will achieve this both on a team level and on an international scale, the applications that this can have for egaming businesses and why reliability of data is of the utmost importance.
