At the recent US Open Tennis in New York City the infrastructure was hosted on IBM’s Cloud. Cloud is an ideal solution for such events since a scalable and on-demand architecture can be provisioned quickly, and then it can be taken down after the event as needed. During such events there is an overload on networks with people posting lots of messages on social media and tweets. Mobile technology is in full “swing” with people posting on phones, tablets and other devices. The IT infrastructure may need to scale to an estimated 40 times or more its regular size during such events. The United States Tennis Association connects people to the tournament through its web site and mobile apps, live streaming video, match information and videos that are on the Cloud. The US Open has mobile apps available for download for iPhone, iPad and Android devices that are very popular and provide great information about the tournament. For example, the iPad application provides access to data, statistics and content with specific interactive features.
