Challenges & Goals

As a leading online news media company in Hong Kong, HK01 has faced the challenge of launching multiple products under a tight schedule. With a large audience of over 17 million active users, each product launch requires a significant amount of infrastructure. In order to streamline this process and improve the efficiency of their operations, HK01 has turned to a cloud technology vendor to serve as their primary service provider.

Secondly, cloud solutions provide the flexibility to expand infrastructure as needed and to serve customers during peak hours without downtime. This is especially valuable for solutions that may be difficult to build in a private environment, such as data connections and content delivery networks, which require specialized knowledge and expertise.

Overall, HK01 is using Tencent Cloud solutions to ensure that they can continue to meet the high demands of their audience and maintain their position as a top online news media company in Hong Kong.
