Edgegap and Rafay Systems Joins Forces to Reduce Latency & Improve Performance for Online Gamers

Joint Solution to be Demonstrated at Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona
For online gamers, the most agonizing experience is not when they face certain annihilation by their fiercest opponent. Nope, not even close. It turns out the most terrifying moment for an online gamer is when online play slows down, lags or abruptly stops.
Fast performance is a top priority for gamers, according to a global survey conducted by Limelight Networks. In their State of Online Gaming Report 2018, survey respondents reported that games that load and play quickly are the highest consideration.

Edgegap’s Arbitrium allows gaming studios to automate the decision-making process and deployment of their gaming servers throughout hundreds of data centers. Edgegap receives requests from gaming studios matchmakers and determines the best server locations within Rafay’s Container Deliver Network based on the end users’ location. The result is gaming applications running closer to their players.
Players will enjoy vastly improved online experiences compared to using the public cloud. In addition, cost savings are realized by only running games when and where there is actual user demand.

Beat lag in online video games with Edge Computing!

Montreal, Feb. 13th 2019 – Edgegap launch Arbitrium, the first software to beat latency in online video games. Using “Edge Computing”, Arbitrium allows studios to automate the decision-making process and deployment of their gaming servers throughout hundreds of data centers. The result is server instances running closer from players, and cost saving by only running instances when needed.

Arbitrium
Edge computing is a distributed architecture in which micro-datacenters are deployed throughout the territory instead of using centralized infrastructures like cloud computing. Arbitrium leverages edge computing; each time a video game studio sends a request for a new match, Arbitrium uses those distributed infrastructures and measure potential locations to run the match. Using multiple data points and measurements, it makes a decision within seconds on the best datacenter to use. It can then start a game instance, and monitor results throughout the duration of the match. Each game is optimized, allowing for minimal latency for each player. This patent pending solution is available worldwide and supports multiple type of hardware and infrastructures.

Success
Proud of its first place at “Multi-access Edge Computing” congress hackathon in Berlin in 2018, Edgegap’s Arbitrium will be premiere in Barcelona at “Mobile World Congress”. A live demo will be available on site.
