Building a Next-Generation Streaming Platform With Sky (Cloud Next '19)


Learn how Sky, Europe’s largest pay TV broadcaster, pioneered a next-generation scalable, on-demand platform for processing and serving live television. Previously, processing and serving live TV required large up-front capital outlays, with a need to provision for peak demand. With Sky’s Software Defined Streaming platform, built in conjunction with Harmonic and delivered on the Google Cloud Platform, Sky is able to spin up all the infrastructure and services required for channels on demand, before a live sporting event, and spin them down when not required. In this session, we will walk through the end-to-end architecture, from the top of the application stack down to the GCP infrastructure that supports this use case. We will also discuss the cultural and operational challenges to overcome, in order to enable a move from the traditional on-premises world of broadcast engineering to the agile world of cloud.
