Companies mentioned in this article: Peak 10

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Recent advances in IT infrastructure delivery have changed the way gaming companies are supporting their server and network infrastructure. Cloud computing has risen as a delivery model, yet pervasive bandwidth and malicious software is putting massive nearly-untraceable attack capabilities in the hands of ill-willed users. During the 2014 Game Developers Conference (GDC) being held March 17-March 21 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, national IT infrastructure and cloud solutions provider, Peak 10, will join Curse, one of the largest gaming-information properties worldwide, to explore new models for scaling, safeguarding user data and surviving data threats.

Bill Cashman, gaming infrastructure design architect for Peak 10, and Bryan McLemore, director of IT for Curse, will address how gaming companies are rethinking critical strategies in order to support their online presence in today’s evolving infrastructure landscape during the interactive discussion, “Metagame: Scale Resources, Protect Data, Survive Threats” on Wednesday, March 19 at 5 p.m. in South Hall Room 302. For each person that attends the session, Peak 10 will donate $5 to Child’s Play, a charity that purchases consoles and games for children at hospitals and therapy facilities.

Online gaming topped $17 billion in 2012, 172 percent growth from 2009 to 2012. The rise of online gaming and app development increases the demand for flexible, scalable infrastructure solutions that enable developers to design the games and apps, and publishers to launch them into production environments quickly and efficiently. Peak 10 offers end-to-end IT solutions that allow game companies to reduce hardware requirements, optimize server utilization and provide higher levels of availability and security for their IT infrastructure. Peak 10 has deployed its tailored IT solutions for well-known companies in the interactive games sector such as Curse, attracting more than 50 million unique visitors.

GDC is the world's largest and longest-running professionals-only game industry event. Peak 10 executives will be available for meetings on Thursday, March 20 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. in North Hall Room 111.
