The Harlem Globetrotters (HGT) are a legendary exhibition basketball team, known globally for their one-of-a-kind family entertainment and great basketball skills for the past 93 years. With more than 26,000 exhibition games in 122 countries and multiple world tours under their belt, the team combines athleticism, theater, and comedy in their style.
When the global superstars came to us looking for a strategic partner to help drive greater value, impact, and [scalable] experiences for their company and customers, we were excited to put our cloud expertise to work.
In completing an audit, we found massive spikes and dips in HGT’s online traffic, based largely around HGT’s overall seasonal tours, individual city and state performances, and presence in the media as they continued to master world-record breaking stunts (you know, the usual). The migration allowed HGT to optimize their cloud architecture and network configuration by fine tuning it to the ebb and flow of their seasonal needs, while providing increased reliability and the best possible experience for the team and their attendees.
