Whether using cloud services in isolation or as part of a hybrid model, new working practices that may not be immediately obvious to broadcasters must be adopted from the very beginning of the design.
Broadcasters have been designing 24/7 operations since the dawn of television but much of their expertise lies in the field of circuit switched networks. SDI and AES form the backbone of this type of operation, but as broadcasters transition to IP and adopt the cloud, there are many new working practices that must be considered and implemented.
Packet switched networks employed in IP need a different mindset, and when combined with the methodologies that agile demonstrates some interesting working practices emerge. For example, chaos engineering may sound like a strange proposition, but it has the potential, when used in a controlled environment, to deliver even greater reliability and resilience for broadcasters.
