One of CrowdStrike’s biggest link-ups in sportscar racing is its relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS), the Global Technology Provider of SRO Motorsports Group and the global presenting sponsor of Fanatec GT World Challenge Powered by AWS and the new GT America Powered by AWS. Thanks to CrowdStrike tools, racing series such as SRO enjoy protection of their team, driver and company data.
CrowdStrike uses its cloud technology alongside AWS’ set of tools for technical analysis, cloud data storage and logistics – among others – to give SRO series and competitors a solid 1-2 punch in the field of cloud computing, security and analytics. SRO uses AWS services to enhance the fan viewing experience with solutions like Race Vision, which tracks and displays data from cars, providing access to insights previously only available to teams. The key stats include the fastest driver through high-speed corners and the latest brakers into corners. SRO also uses AWS services like EC2, Global Accelerator, Elemental Media Live and MediaConnect to power its esports series.
CrowdStrike and AWS also combine for a one-of-a-kind discussion model that is truly unique: the highly popular “CXO Summits” at SRO and IMSA weekends. It brings together event VIPs with executives from CrowdStrike, AWS and other prominent CXOs to discuss emerging trends in Internet and cloud cybersecurity. It’s a unique, private business-to-business opportunity pioneered by CrowdStrike to enhance the trackside guest experience.
