Discovery Communications Continues Global Expansion with Help from Savvis Managed Services
Discovery needed to build a more centralized international infrastructure that would serve multiple regions more reliably and cost-effectively and since its primary market at that time was in the United Kingdom, it made sense to locate it there. Discovery originally outsourced its U.K. infrastructure operations to Intel’s hosting unit in 2001. When Savvis purchased Intel’s hosting assets in 2002, Discovery decided to expand its infrastructure with Savvis, primarily for cost reasons. Discovery constantly analyzes its operations to make sure it is making the right decisions about what gets outsourced and what it can do themselves. Because outsourcing was working well, it was an easy decision to continue growing its infrastructure with Savvis.
