i3D.net & Kingston
i3D.net offers solutions for game publishers, enterprises, IT service providers with worldwide hosting or connectivity demands. Those clients include triple A game companies that leverage high-performance servers. i3D.net's game servers allow millions of gamers to play their favourite titles daily. Additionally, i3D.net's enterprise customers use hosted servers to run applications with high-availability and high-capacity requirements. Every year, technologies change rapidly and customer server requirements increase.
Kingston Technology has continually set industry standards of quality and reliability throughout its history and is now the world's largest independent manufacturer of memory products. Since the start of i3D.net Kingston’s memory products have been an essential part of the continuously increasing number of dedicated servers that i3D.net manages across the globe. Kingston products are known for exceptional responsiveness and ultra-low latency.
The Need for Speed with Kingston
For gaming customers, performance translates into game servers that minimize lag times. That's particularly important for twitch-game (first-person shooter) titles that rely upon prompt screen refreshes to deliver a satisfactory, multi-player game user experience. With the release of new games and gaming platforms like Xbox® and PlayStation®, the technical engineers at i3D.net have to continuously raise the bar on server capabilities. Previously, the high loads stressed out the servers. But since i3D.net upgraded them with Kingston memory and was able to double the number of gaming instances.
At i3D.net, we only work with the highest quality A-brand hardware and partners. i3D.net and Kingston have been partners since 2004. Over time, Kingston has proven to deliver high-quality products.

More Virtualization with Kingston RAM
To support corporate virtualization requirements, it was necessary to upgrade servers to the maximum memory capacity we could support. To meet this need, Kingston specialists recommended the largest capacity memory modules the company provides. They installed high-density DRAM modules that best matched each server’s chipset and memory requirements. This approach satisfied memory performance needs while leaving memory slots available for future expansions.
Working with Kingston allows us to customize our server configurations as needed to meet our customers' requirements. That way we are able to offer a tailored solution portfolio versus a one-size-fits all. And that has been very attractive to i3D.net’s customers.
