(Gawkwire.com) TELEHOUSE America now offers a new suite of solutions specifically packaged for online gaming companies and operators.
The global online gaming industry is set to grow by 11% year-over-year through 2013, according to the Global Online Gaming Report 2009 published by Aarkstore Enterprise Market Research. “In the US, the amount of online play is growing 10 times as fast as the overall US Internet population, with nearly one of every two users getting in the game.” This growth is driving gaming companies to reassess their technical requirements and seek access to Internet backbone providers, traditionally housed in carrier-grade data center and colocation facilities.
As a pioneer in the global data center and colocation market, TELEHOUSE provides Total Solutions to a wide variety of industries. TELEHOUSE America houses the mission-critical equipment and manages the day-to-day IT operations of several of the world’s top Tier 1 and Tier 2 global Internet backbone providers. In addition, their facilities offer access to two of the most heavily trafficked IP peering exchanges operational today, the New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX) and the Los Angeles International Internet Exchange (LAIIX).
Through TELEHOUSE’s Global Interlink service, (dedicated VLAN Ethernet), the company offers connectivity between all of its 37 global data center facilities and access to other data center or colocation facility providers. These services enable gaming companies and other media providers the resources required to implement their ubiquitous growth needs while achieving true diversity for their mission-critical IT environments. Furthermore, TELEHOUSE facilities ensure a high-level of business continuity and disaster prevention. In addition, TELEHOUSE’s suite of managed IT services, Manage-E, offers gaming companies a complete layer of 24/7 infrastructure management and IT systems support, both remotely and onsite at its data centers. “With the growth of the online gaming marketplace, we recognize the sector’s growing need for secure, high capacity data center facilities with scalable managed services and access to a multitude of different Internet service providers,” comments Fred Cannone, Director of Sales and Marketing for TELEHOUSE America. “In the past year we have seen a steady increase in the number of opportunities from gaming companies from all over the world. Our experience with and expertise in implementing and managing global data centers solutions for gaming providers and others, will serve to benefit this unique industry, in ways other providers cannot.
As a further testament to TELEHOUSE’s commitment to the gaming industry, the company will be attending the upcoming Streaming Media East conference and exhibition in New York from May 11-12, 2010.
