Taiwan's leading e-Paper brand utilizes CCX service to comprehensively improve the backup efficiency.
With the rapid advancement of mobile communication technology, the news media industry has been constantly facing major changes in “quality” and “quantity.” Over the past years, the printed newspapers possibly could not satisfy the large audience’s needs for knowledge. Therefore, “e-Paper”, a new form of media communication, came into being. When it comes to the process of how e-Paper works, there is a large amount of news production every day, all of which are considered as precious assets to newspaper offices. As a consequence, data backup has become an essential part of the operation of e-newspapers.
Assisting the traditional media industry in moving forward to the cloud transformation
Looking into the domestic market, the competition in the e-paper market is very fierce. Larger companies are including China Times News, Liberty Times News, Apple Daily, ETtoday, Nownews, Central News Agency, etc., web portals are including Yahoo News, MSN Taiwan, PChome News, Yam News, Webs-TV News, etc.
Among them, the well-known news media, which has been established for nearly 70 years, utilized Chief Cloud eXchange (CCX) platform service to cope with the situation of “qualitative changes” and “quantitative changes” engendered by the audience and the media environment. CCX is a multi-clouds integration platform with dedicated private connection network, allowing it to directly connect to the global public cloud data center for data backup and storage, and further brings a high delivery rate and secure cloud service at a lower network cost. By leveraging CCX service, it successfully overcame the obstacle generated by the cloud transformation and still maintains its leading position in domestic e-paper market for now.
The manager of the e-newspaper company mentioned that our ePapers generally publish thousands of news on various topics per day. How to quickly and safely back up these precious intangible assets is undoubtedly a big issue. Due to the accumulated number of news articles, the newspaper office needs to back up the news contents to the on-premises data center at the given time. If it is not completed on schedule, it will inevitably have a significant impact on other work schedules.
Only take one month for testing to complete provision
In the past, we used public internet to connect Cloud VPN. The instability of the transfer speed directly affected the backup schedule. Hence, in order to solve this thorny issue, we chose Chief CCX service in July 2019.
The manager further revealed that he thought the installation process would take a lot of efforts to complete. Surprisingly, the whole process from introducing CCX service to the success of the quality test for network connection only took one month to complete provision. Chief technical team eliminated the doubts of the network management department with directly connect to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) through a 1G dedicated line at a lower connection cost, and provides us high-efficiency and high-security service. Due to the satisfactory connection performance of CCX, the newspaper office is currently planning for future requirements and meanwhile considering an additional dedicated line as a backup to ensure the operation smoothly.
