Liquid Web Supports Game of Thrones RPG Through Rapid Scaling

When its GoT game blew up, Disruptor Beam needed to add infrastrucure while controlling expenses. Liquid Web delivered with dedicated SSDs, an Arista switch, hybrid connectivity and on-demand flexibility. 

Disruptor Beam has become a powerful force in the area of social gaming. Their latest foray, the role-playing game called Game of Thrones Ascent, was an instant hit with Game of Thrones fans, and with this success came the growing pains and impediments associated with a new launch. With thousands of users joining each month, the need for fast, expandable storage was critical to eliminate the issues of game lag and the obstacles related to inaccessibility that can typically try the short patience of the avid gamer and make them engage elsewhere. On top of this was the need to control capital expenditures, a critical component to handling the added infrastructure needed to keep up with the game’s commercial success while operating within a clearly defined budget.
