We keep seeing posts from lots of frustrated Spacial Audio/SAM Broadcaster Cloud customers.
It appears there have been several major SAM Broadcaster Cloud outages recently on the Microsoft Azure platform hosting Spacial Audio’s cloud solution.
One user had this to say on Twitter:
Another station owner felt he had apologise to his listeners:
How is anyone supposed to run a radio stream successfully on a cloud server if that cloud server suffers with lots of problems and failures?
This is on top of the dreaded buffering problems that people keep suffering from.
We thought the whole idea of a “Cloud” service was so people could leave their station to automate without the need for a PC to always be on?
With the SAM Broadcaster Cloud servers having several major outages recently it doesn’t appear to be the case.
The current model/service doesn’t appear to be working properly for anyone. Station owners and DJ’s aren’t going to want to pay out $$$ for a “cloud” service that isn’t up to the job.
FACT: You would get better stability running RadioDJ on a Windows VPS than you do from Spacial Audio’s Sam Broadcaster Cloud.
This was the suggestion one user made on Twitter after the latest outage.
Stop paying Spacial Audio for their cloud services they obviously have NO clue as to how to run them.
