Microsoft’s Azure to support Super Bowl live stream

The latest task for Microsoft’s growing cloud-computing service: helping people watch the Super Bowl online.

NBC, the broadcaster of Sunday’s game, will use Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform to support its online live stream. The network will also reportedly use services from Adobe and Akamai Technologies, bringing back the same trio that NBC relied on to stream the Winter Olympics last year. 

Providing the plumbing for America’s most-watched television event is a thankless task. Nobody thought too hard about the electricity company piping in power to the Superdome in New Orleans a couple Super Bowls ago until the lights went out with 100 million people watching.

So, no pressure, Azure. But you might want to take the next couple days to double check that everything’s plugged in properly at your server farms.

NBC has more details on the obscene amount of hours of pre- and post-game broadcasting it plans to offer via the Web.
