As a global managed-hosting provider, i3D.net can deploy thousands of servers worldwide for your titles. Following an initial order we can guarantee additional server deployments at each location within 72 hours. To enhance flexibility for game releases we offer standby servers to ensure that a suitable inventory of hardware is available as needed to stay ahead of customer demand for milestones such as open betas, demos, release launches, and downloadable content (DLC). Standard hardware configurations can often be deployed in as little as 4 hours and commissioned for periods as short as 60 days.
Worldwide Hosting: Global Reach
i3D.net operates data center locations around the world. All our data centers employ the best available local networks and tier 1 transit providers for optimized connectivity, minimized latency and systemic redundancy. Primary locations include: United States (California, Florida, Georgia, Texas, Virginia), Canada (Toronto), United Kingdom (London), the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Heerlen), France (Paris), Germany (Frankfurt), Poland (Warsaw), Russia (Moscow), Brazil (São Paulo), Japan (Tokyo), Australia (Sydney), China (Hong Kong), Singapore and South Africa (Johannesburg).
Global Hosting Performance
i3D.net offers 99.99% uptime guarantees covering hardware, power, and network devices (including firewalls, load balancers, routers and switches), and even 100% global uptime guarantees in High Availability clusters, so that your ability to transmit and receive data is maximized at every point of presence controlled by i3D.net. We take full responsibility of repairing or replacing hardware components and servers at no cost to you, generally within 1 hour of malfunctioning. Our control panel is available 24/7 and our game monitoring will always provide us with the most recent stats.
Our proprietary control panel is a non-blocking, non-interfering middleware application that runs on both Windows and Linux. The control panel supports the all game server platforms. Built-in functions allow for easy management of large game server clusters across all locations. Our control panel complies with Microsoft's 3rd party hosting guidelines. It manages and monitors all services, allows detailed real-time alerts and logs performance so that game play can be tracked and optimized down to the individual game server level. i3D.net services include management of the entire environment (i.e. deployments, patching, configuration changes and the automatic generation of XLSP configs). Customers can elect at any time to manage the hosted services through a dedicated control panel. Our development team will be available to customize applications, portals and tools to suit the specific needs of your systems and titles.
Global Hosting Reports
i3D.net game monitoring tracks and reports on a wide variety of customizable key performance indicators (KPIs) to our customers for all servers, locations and continents —globally and in real time. These metrics provide full transparency of the operating system (i.e. CPU, RAM, Disk), select applications (i.e. process statistics, users, throughput), and databases (i.e. caching, performance, transaction success).
All our data centers are fully PCI compliant (onsite physical security, closed CCTV systems, key card regulation and restricted areas). Our North American data centers are SAS70 Type II certified – all data centers have accreditation from the Content Delivery and Storage Association (CDSA). In order to make sure that your servers run in optimized environmental conditions, HVAC systems use full particle filtering, humidity and climate controls that comply with ASHRAE Guidelines. We also use on-site generators and uninterruptible power systems to provide redundant power supply, should a critical incident occur on the local power grid — and we back it all up with a 100% Power SLA. Our data centers utilize only renewable energy resources.
Proof of Concept (PoC)
We are happy to fly out and demo our services, organize a conference call to provide an online demo. i3D.net is also available for proof-of-concepts in live production environments.
