Egyptian broadcaster uses Azure, open source to join digital world

Egyptian Radio and Television Union

Public broadcaster Egyptian Radio and Television Union (ERTU) was doing well as one of the oldest and most important broadcasters in the Middle East, but its management feared it was being left behind by the digital revolution. To remain competitive, ERTU management wanted to introduce new services, such as online streaming and video on demand. So, the broadcaster, in partnership with the Egyptian Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT), turned for help to the Egyptian managed service provider Link Datacenter; the Egyptian development house Link Development; and Microsoft Azure. As a result, ERTU is now running an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) environment on Azure to provide new digital services in a secure, stable environment, and has already realized an increase in revenues and a significant reduction in costs.
