Online gaming is a billion-dollar industry that has experienced insane growth over the last decade. With technologies like 4K and VR/AR facilitating exciting innovations in gaming, more data is required to deliver a seamless gaming experience. Whether you are looking to accelerate game downloads, deliver smooth gaming experience, or optimize gameplay, Baishan can help to make your games more enjoyable for your players.
Industry Pain Points
The size of game downloads is increasing exponentially. Making gamers wait hours to download an update or a patch is a downright bad user experience.
Lagging is gamers’ worst nightmares. Modern video games are interactive and immersive. When a game slows down, it can really take the player out of the moment and cause frustration.
Online games offer an environment for players to play with people anywhere around the world. However, for game developers, it’s difficult to deploy resources properly to ensure every player in the world has the same seamless playing experience.
New game launch or new update often follows high and unpredictable traffic burst which could overload the server. It’s hard and costly to scale resources whenever there is a new release.
Large File Download
Baishan leverages its unique shared cache storage mechanism to provide a reliable and fast acceleration solution for large files with size up to 300GB. Range request and partial object caching are supported to ensure smooth delivery to all devices.
