LOS ANGELES, May 20, 2010 – Using Reliam's Private Cloud and Internet Application Management methodologies, Reliam was able to optimize and scale MissUniverse.com to provide an excellent experience to loyal fans of the annual pageant which aired on May 16, 2010.
The MISS UNIVERSE® and MISS USA® competitions air as live specials and consistently rank among the most-watched television programming in the world. Because a significant amount of fans, press and media attention is drawn to Missuniverse.com, there is a need to support an increased load on the resources which support The Miss Universe Organization’s architecture. Using Reliam’s Dynamic Scalability model, Reliam is able to offer on-demand resources to successfully scale prior and condense resources after the event. This type of solution allows The Miss Universe Organization to maintain high visibility during peak times without investing huge capital throughout the year.
“By providing The Miss Universe Organization with high availability services and on-demand resources, we play an instrumental role in their event success,” said Nate Johnson, CEO, Reliam. “There are a lot of cloud services out there - it’s knowing how to use the technology effectively to deliver excellent services that separates Reliam from the rest.”
