The Opportunity

Sling TV was looking for a proven solution to stay competitive and provide a first-class customer experience. They wanted to personalize the user experience on a grand scale and also be able to scale on demand.

This new platform needed to be highly available and resilient while centralizing business logic over 16 different platforms across the country. They wanted to be able to deliver a seamless experience to all customers.

Sling TV needed to have the ability to build out a backend in the hybrid cloud environment and a distributed database with a continuous deployment model. The chosen solution is also to provide media distribution capabilities.

DataStax Enterprise (DSE) has become a key part of our hybrid cloud strategy and has enabled our software to run in private and public clouds with close to the same tooling. With DSE, we are now able to replicate data across the country in less than two seconds, which is a big win for us. We look forward to leveraging DSE to power the future growth of Sling TV.
