Cisco UCS Now Running Plays
The best day in football records
I grew up a Colts fan. A extreme Colts fan. I loved looking Peyton Manning lead the crew to shatter records, become an AFC electricity house, and challenge the (villainous) Tom Brady-led Patriots in an extreme, thrill-inducing competition.
After several epic showdowns, the Colts beat the Pats within the 2006 AFC Championship to strengthen to excellent Bowl XLI, in which they beat the Chicago Bears 29-17.
I remember that recreation love it changed into the day prior to this… Yelling. Cheering. mother dancing to the Prince half-time show. Me sprinting to the kitchen table to fill my plate with pizza, jumping the dog because I didn’t want to miss a second of that awesome game.
A big day for business
The biggest day in football is one of the biggest for companies too. It starts with the commercials and the exponential increases in exposure they offer. That part is what we all see. Behind the scenes, companies also spend big money on the big day to keep their operations running smoothly and their millions of customers happy.
It’s no easy feat. So how do they do it?
Domino delivers with Cisco UCS
On Super Bowl Sunday, Domino’s sells more than 11 million slices of pizza – three and half times what they sell on a regular Sunday. It’s the third busiest delivery day of the year. That’s a lot of pie to track, route, deliver, and serve up piping hot.
With 60 percent of Domino’s business coming from online orders, managing this surge of business wouldn’t be possible without a strong network backbone. With Cisco UCS® infrastructure, Domino’s network is able to manage ordering influxes quickly and securely. This helps Domino’s go into their busiest days of the year with their game faces on and ensure that every order is accounted for so the people get their pizza before the party starts.
The big game this year
On February 4, 2018, tens of millions of Americans will tune into Super Bowl LII, where the Philadelphia Eagles will face the New England Patriots.
Beer and pizza slice in hand, we’ll cheer on our team, laugh at our favorite commercials, and wonder if Justin Timberlake will get through the half-time show without a scandal.
Countless unsung heroes will work tirelessly in the background so we can stream the Super Bowl without a glitch and get our pizza delivered on-time. All thanks to technology and the people who use it.
