Success Story


Video platform for the young offering from ARD & ZDF
Success story funk

What was the Task?

funk is ARD and ZDF's youth service with online content for 14 to 29-year-olds. The funk app, the website and the backend, including video provisioning for YouTube, Facebook and other channels, had to be completely rebuilt.

What did we do?

Together with the customer team, Accso designed and implemented the complete backend of funk. The solution includes a cloud platform based on Kaltura Video and the Google Compute Engine as well as cluster management based on Kubernetes.

How does this benefit the customer?

Thanks to the clever combination of cloud components (SaaS - Software as a Service and IaaS - Infrastructure as a Service) and individually developed components, the entire backend platform was designed, customized for funk and put into productive operation in just 6 months. In addition, the Kubernetes-based cluster management ensures smooth and very cost-effective operation even under high load.
