BENEFITS OF CHOOSING GCP
In addition to high-quality content, the back-end system of a live streaming app must be able to handle its peak traffic to avoid breakdown. 17 LIVE thus chose to deploy its system on a cloud platform at an early stage.
As the business grows, 17 LIVE re-examined its infrastructure and adjusted the previous release cycle to offer more services. Kevin Li, Senior Vice President of Product and Engineering said, “With Google Kubernetes Engine, our development cycle experienced an 80 percent increase in overall speed. And Google Cloud data processing products such as BigQuery and Cloud Dataflow enable us to better understand our user base, as well as monitor, analyze, and review the quality of our services.”
Meanwhile, CloudMile provides consulting services on the cloud platform as well as technical support, which has saved engineers in 17 LIVE lots of trouble.
