We have decided to start moving the content from DRSC Media to a new host.
As previously mentioned in other articles, we have finally settled on a new host for DRSC Media, this one being German company STRATO.
Moving to STRATO will enable us to cut our costs in digital infrastructure by 50 %, lowering the goals for DRSC Media, allowing this branch to achieve financial sustainability faster than initially expected.
Financial sustainability for DRSC Media is a goal that us and our financial partners wish to achieve as soon as possible, a goal which monopolized the discussions at our 2018 Annual Meeting, held in November 2018 in Brussels. The poor results produced by DRSC Media since its launch in October 2017 and our Annual Meeting in 2018 forced the main branch to take drastic measures, reducing the allocated workforce, and pushing the remaining employees to work more on DRSC Media, until eventually suspending the project between mid-November 2018 and beginning of March 2019.
We’ve now resumed operations, publishing over 50 new articles since the beginning of the month and achieving some of the highest visit rates the site has seen since launch.
We expect to finish the move somewhere in the next two months.
