Viewers’ appetite for streaming media has never been higher. In recent months, many sites have seen unprecedented traffic surges, putting strain on their infrastructures to keep pace - all while adapting their workflows to a work-from-home model.
Listen in as Nick Rockwell, Fastly’s senior vice president of engineering and the former chief technology officer for the New York Times, speaks with a panel of technology leaders at worldwide digital publishers about how they’re coping with this new normal, and what the future may hold.
