Hyve hosts NTA website for fourth year in a row

Global hosting provider Hyve increases cloud resources for NTAs partner Indigo Television during the voting period to handle extra visitors to the site

Hyve is hosting the National Television Awards (NTAs) servers for the fourth ceremony in a row. 

The Brighton-based global hosting provider has curated a bespoke, load-balanced cloud solution for the British television awards ceremony’s partner Indigo Television, scaling resources during multiple rounds of online public voting running up to the ceremony on 5 September.

How Hyve ensures 100% uptime, reliability and scalability

With an overwhelming number of votes cast online during two stages leading up to the ceremony, ensuring both reliability and scalability of the NTAs website during these periods is critical, Hyve says. It hosts two virtual servers for the NTAs on its managed enterprise cloud platform and has been upgrading cloud resources for the website over the summer as and when needed, to ensure everyone who wants to vote can, and that it remains a fair and consistent process. 

This year, the server resources have been increased by 24 times their usual levels within the two voting windows to accommodate the increased heavy traffic from the members of the British public participating in the votes. Resources are then dialled back to usual levels in between voting stages in order to cut out unnecessary resources from the cloud solution.

As well as creating a bespoke, scalable cloud solution for the NTAs in order to guarantee 100% uptime, Hyve’s support team is also on hand to continuously monitor the servers even after resources have been increased to their new levels. This team sets alert thresholds for the servers and if the NTAs website experiences unprecedented levels of traffic, Hyve can proactively increase resources again. The ability to scale cloud resources dynamically on virtual servers also helps streamline the voting period for Indigo Television as nothing new needs to be introduced beyond their existing hardware, meaning they don’t need new logins or IPs when voting commences. 

Kim Turberville, Executive Producer at the National Television Awards, said: “Having Hyve available 24/7 as an extension of our team allows the whole process to run without a hitch. We stick with them year in, year out because they deliver a cloud solution that works for us during voting without having to pay for resources we don’t need the rest of the year.” 

Jake Madders, Director and Co-Founder of Hyve, added: “Creating cloud solutions that are tailored to the individual requirements of organisations is what we do best, and we’re thrilled that the NTAs team trusts us to handle this busy period for them time and time again.”
