The Dallas Morning News and Denton Record-Chronicle recently became the first sites to run CCI NewsGate in the Amazon cloud. The move was a major step for longtime partners CCI and A.H. Belo, the owner of The Dallas Morning News and Record-Chronicle, and while a great deal of work went into the transition, the newsrooms hardly seemed to notice.
As the leading newspaper and local digital media provider in the Dallas-Fort Worth, US area, The Dallas Morning News could have easily gotten nervous about moving all their print production in CCI NewsGate from in-house infrastructure to a cloud-based solution. But in the end the switch went smoothly.
‘Indeed, the first day of production with CCI NewsGate’s cloud solution was the best kind of rollout: anti climactic’, said Jeremy Van Zee, Belo’s Director of Technology. The users barely noticed the transition according to Van Zee, who at one point overheard someone in the newsroom say: ‘Wow. It works just like before. I can’t even tell I’m working in the cloud’.
CCI is proud to partner with A.H. Belo on this first NewsGate cloud installation. As media companies worldwide look to continue to reduce their investment in in-house infrastructure, CCI is now poised to make more big moves to the cloud – quietly.
