It seems that Spacial Audio have been having issues with their SAM Broadcaster Cloud service again.

SAM Broadcaster Cloud Outages

This is just one of a long line of dropouts/outages with their SAM Broadcaster Cloud service which is hosted on the Microsoft Azure platform

@spacial SAM Cloud has been hanging a lot lately. Today starting just before noon, there was three hours of silence before I caught it. This is not acceptable! please fix.

@spacial SAM Cloud is down here in the UK apologies to all our listeners

@spacial What in the heck is going on with your servers? It’s pulling my station Live Broadcasts….not cool!

How is anyone supposed to run a online radio station if the cloud servers keep going down?

“Any information on what’s currently going on? Our stream has been down since 6pm, your website and app are down too…”

Its about the only time you actually see the Spacial Audio marketing department replying to complaints on Twitter.

Sorry Folks, the stream is down! Hopefully the good folks @spacial will have this figured out soon!

I personally don’t trust these cloud radio automation services there’s just something I don’t like about having no control over what happens when the servers go down.

Maybe one day they will get their act together and give people a solution that stays online for more than a few days at a time.

It seems that SAM Broadcaster Cloud isn’t worth the monthly/yearly fees.

Stop buying software and services from Spacial Audio them you’ll only end up regretting it!
