Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) is a media company providing regional services to 46 radio stations across Minnesota. Their programming division, American Public Media, is one of the largest producers and distributors of public radio programming in the world. They collaborated with Object Partners to create a proof of concept to host their news, streaming music, and podcast sites in AWS.
While evaluating an aging active-passive disaster recovery plan, MPR decided to modernize their applications and approach by moving to a cloud infrastructure. This infrastructure would have to provide resiliency to serve their disaster recovery plan, scalability as their audience grows, and nimbleness as the technology driving their apps changes and evolves.
