Key requirements

  • Highly scalable infrastructure
  • Dynamic server allocation
  • Ample bandwidth on demand
  • Reliable network performance
  • Excellent support
  • High capacity network with global connectivity

The request
TVs are getting smarter. Connected to the Internet, Smart TVs can access a fantastic array of on-demand programming and download apps that run on-screen. In fact, it is estimated that by 2017 64% of Western European homes will have a TV connected to the Internet, and Grundig is developing tools to supply content to those TVs.

To bring the Internet to life on its Smart TVs, Grundig needed an innovative and reliable partner with world-class hosting infrastructure and robust global connectivity.

The solution
Grundig chose Leaseweb, an expert IaaS provider known for their advanced hosting solutions and excellent 24/7 customer support. When Grundig’s customers download Internet applications through their smart TVs, they do so via Leaseweb Dedicated Servers. These high-end servers connect to a state-of-the-art network that offers unsurpassed global connectivity, massive bandwidth, and ultimate uptime.

Grundig and Leaseweb perform continuous stress tests on the platform. To monitor performance during the resilience testing, some servers are shut down whilst parts of the network are allowed to operate normally. At all times, Leaseweb keeps Grundig updated about results from the tests and server conditions. This level of excellent service helped cement the relationship between Leaseweb and Grundig.
