Leaseweb Deploys 400 Extra Servers in Preparation of Crytek's Launch of Hunt: Showdown on the Xbox One
Leaseweb has deployed an extra 400 dedicated servers to enhance the infrastructure of Crytek as they launch their online game Hunt:Showdown on the Xbox One. The servers were quickly installed in areas with the highest concentration and will guarantee flawless online gaming for Crytek gamers on the Xbox One in Europe and the US.

The physical proximity of servers, as well as network latency and speed, determine the quality of the online gaming experience," explained Faruk Yerli, CEO, Crytek. "An important measure of quality online gameplay is lag, which is why, ahead of this launch, we worked with Leaseweb to help us guarantee as little lag as possible."

"We support the company strategically by planning together and having resources ready to facilitate updates and launches such as Hunt: Showdown."

Yerli added: "For any game launch, or update, it's vitally important to have a flexible infrastructure that can scale up quickly - which can involve deploying hundreds of dedicated servers with certain specifications within days. Leaseweb provides that flexibility to Crytek by being proactive and proposing infrastructure improvements based on our requirements. With Leaseweb, Crytek has achieved 100% availability and a very low average lag time."
