Our own data centers

Online multiplayer titles and ever-growing game sizes require low-latency, high performance and fast delivery times. By 2009, it was time to put down our roots. Our high-performance hardware required an environment that was fully under our own control. We built a data center in the Van Nelle Factory in Rotterdam. Smartdc Rotterdam is now one of the largest data centers in the region, and it’s connected to multiple Tier-1 in-house carriers and major IXPs.
