i3D.net expands: new locations, new servers

2 October, 2007 (12:24) | Business as usual, Game industry

Yup, we’re growing, in Europe and in a little while even beyond European borders:

i3D.net adds two additional locations: Frankfurt, Germany and London, United Kingdom. We are already active in Amsterdam and Rotterdam in The Netherlands.

Our Frankfurt location is already online for Quake Wars Ranked server clients. The London location has been added to provide better support to our English customers.

We have also expanded our serverfarm with over 100 new quadcore Dell PowerEdge servers in the last month. These servers feature 2,4 Ghz Quadcore Intel CPUs and 2 to 4 GB ECC ram each.
i3D.net continues to support it’s One-core-One-game policy: we run every gameserver on a separate CPU core for maximum performance. All ranked and PREMIUM gameservers use this unique i3D.net-standard.

Our inhouse developed controlpanel also has been expanded with a large number of new features and improved multi-lingual support.

Before the end of this year we will announce new deals with gamepublishers; i3D.net will host several new ranked games in our international datacenter locations.

We’re investing in quality and that always pays off.

Does the Frankfurt location offer a DTAG peering, or is the ‘usual’ Wedare network in use?

Different network, we selected the network in Germany on connectivity in Germany and Eastern Europe
