Fast and Furious: The Abyss Powered by Akamai
The Abyss is now powered by Akamai, the global leader in Content Delivery Network (CDN) services, providing fast, reliable and secure Internet solutions. As of now, Akamai has deployed the most pervasive, highly-distributed CDN with more than 240 000 servers in over 130 countries and within more than 1 700 networks around the globe. Eighty-five percent of the world’s Internet users are within a single “network hop” of an Akamai CDN server.
Valve’s Steam uses Akamai’s CDN for storing screenshots and icons uploaded by users. In August, 2017, Nintendo launched its new game console and mobile application simultaneously around the world via the company’s media delivery solutions. Other customers include Adobe Systems, Airbnb, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, MTV Networks, NASA, Sony PlayStation and Yahoo!.
That is why we have chosen Akamai as our CDN provider. Akamai’s technologies, being the world’s best, will be used for the digital content distribution after the launch of the platform.
And right now we use these technologies for delivering the prototype to end users, together with its updates. Everybody, from each single place on the planet, can download The Abyss prototype for Windows (43 Mb) or use its newly released web version enjoying the speed ensured by the Akamai’s solution. The numbers below just speak for themselves.
