The worldwide video game industry now exceeds $76 billion, with projections it will reach more than $86 billion by 2016. To stay ahead in this growing market, gaming companies have to keep up with an exploding number of global users and new platforms, while maintaining a steady pipeline of gaming options. For sports betting and casino game providers, there are current and future gaming regulations to adhere to that vary by state and country.


A Global Data Center Platform for High-Performance Gaming

It's essential for gaming companies to work in concert with content delivery networks (CDNs), social networks, game console companies, cloud service providers and smart phone device platforms to reach their expanding customer base. They also must support various monetization models, such as subscription and free-to-play, to grow their customer base and revenues. And they must provide the transaction security and data security compliance and game continuity that is expected of best-in-class, global gaming companies.
