The Challenge

The Technology

The huge influx of listeners the team’s podcast receives pushed their bandwidth to the limit. Moving approximately 15 TB of data per month, the team approached UKFast for a solution that could cope with the huge demand their quick-witted podcasts were generating.

UKFast were quick to diagnose the problem, prescribing eCloud® Flex as the ideal solution to remedy such a huge increase in traffic and downloads.

UKFast’s eCloud® Flex offered the flexibility, scalability and speed The Naked Scientists need. The Naked Scientists explained why eCloud® Flex is so vital to a business that publishes in-demand content globally.
