Game developers at Ubisoft are using technology from Internap to exchange data over a global network at up to 400 megabits per second.
Internap utilized its Flow Control Xcelerator 6500 devices to provide additional connection speed for Ubisoft. Ubisoft utilizes the network to exchange video content and game development information between locations in Canada, the United States, France and China.
“Our developers, software and engineering teams all over the world faced challenges collaborating over the web, which caused delays in meeting timelines setup by the executive team,” said Pascal Lacombe, director of Global Network Services at Ubisoft. “Internap’s FCX technology far exceeded our expectations by shortening the window of wait time amongst marketing, quality control, and testing teams in various cities and time zones worldwide. We can now collaborate faster, more effectively and within timelines and budget.”
Internap, which is based in Atlanta, developed the FCX appliance to deliver additional speed over private networks or the Internet.
