HANOVER, Pa., March 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Snyder's of Hanover is teaming with ESPN Radio to leverage the excitement and madness surrounding the end of college basketball season to attract flavor-seeking sports fans.

The launch of the partnership is a month-long promotion, called "Boldest Play," which features a consumer sweepstakes where sports fans can vote for the week's boldest play in basketball for a chance to win a trip for two to New York City to attend an ESPN-televised college basketball tournament at Madison Square Garden. The grand prize also features round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations for three nights, a behind-the-scenes visit to the on-site ESPN broadcast production facilities, and a meet-and-greet with ESPN broadcasters.

Each week, widely-popular ESPN Radio personalities Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg will promote the "Boldest Play" sweepstakes on their show as well as select their picks for the boldest plays in basketball. Sports fans can then go to espnradio.com/boldest to vote for their pick and be entered for the grand prize and weekly prize packs featuring Snyder's of Hanover snacks and ESPN branded items.

"Teaming up with ESPN gives us the perfect stage to promote the bold taste and innovative flavors of our snacks, while also offering a sensational opportunity for consumers to engage with the most popular resource in sports entertainment," said Eric Johnson, Senior Brand Director for Snyder's of Hanover. "We're extremely excited to partner with such a dynamic organization."

The partnership and "Boldest Play" Sweepstakes, which ends March 23, is being promoted on ESPN's TV, radio and digital properties, as well as through Snyder's of Hanover's social media channels, on-package call-outs and in-store displays. Snyder's of Hanover will also sponsor "Top Plays of the Week" on ESPN SportsCenter during the campaign.

ESPN and Snyder's of Hanover are encouraging sports fans to use #boldestplay to join the conversation on Twitter about bold plays. Mike and Mike will also promote Snyder's of Hanover Flavored Pretzel Pieces, new Sweet and Salty Pretzel Pieces, and new Korn Krunchers flavored corn snacks.

Snyder's of Hanover and ESPN are developing a strong, ongoing partnership to reach consumers which will be extended this fall with a "Boldest Play" campaign focused on college football.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud?
