Industry Pain Points

Slow download

The size of game downloads is increasing exponentially.

Interrupted/lagging 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.

Distributed players

As socialization in games became more mature, the interaction between players has gradually became more sophisticated. However, it’s difficult for game developers to deploy resources appropriately to ensure every player in the world has the same seamless playing experience.

Unpredictable

traffic burst

There are sometimes high concurrent requests for audio and video services in the games, causing tremendous pressure on the server. Aside from this, when new games are launched or new updates available, it often follows high and unpredictable traffic bursts which could overload the server. It’s challenging and costly to scale resources whenever there is a new release.
