Cloudera, a leading company in the Big Data segment, develops and markets its Hadoop suite (CDH) -based on different unified open source components- under a powerful centralized management tool, perfect for environments where large data storage and processing capacity are required.
PlayGiga´s Cloud Gaming platform makes intensive use of Cloudera’s Hadoop (CDH) distribution to provide a distributed and scalable file system that meets the massive storage needs of the system.
Likewise, the entire access data collection and logs system of the platform is based on the different elements of the Hadoop ecosystem provided by the CDH distribution, including Kafka, Flume, HBase and Impala.
PlayGiga, leading company in cloud gaming, has selected Interoute’s data center in Spain to host its QA, pre-production and production platforms. Interoute is a leading European provider of advanced data centers, cloud services, virtual servers and hosting services as well as of high quality connectivity.
High bandwidth and low latency are essential to optimize the gaming experience in cloud gaming. Network latency, specifically, is a key variable in this service: in certain games, only 50 milliseconds of network delay can lead to the player´s desertion of the service.
The choice of Interoute to host PlayGiga´s development and pre-production infrastructure was based on three pillars: the quality of the data center service; scalability -enabling PlayGiga´s growth, and the offer of multiple connectivity, which allows to stablish beneficial direct peering agreements.
Interoute offers direct access to both core & regional telecommunications networks, to content distribution providers (CDN) and to neutral points, all of which are a fundamental part of the cloud gaming ecosystem.
