The Request

The company decided to concentrate on the Asian market as it is less saturated with game options than the western market. In Asia, however, connectivity is a major issue so stability and reliability were key factors in their request. Although 6Waves’ games aren’t the most latency-sensitive, it was still important for users to be able to get smooth and hassle-free downloads of both games and patches. They also required a solution that provided a good balance between performance and price.

Connected to the Leaseweb global network, this provides superior connectivity and guarantees reliable connections for 400 million gamers in 150 countries around the world. The proximity of our data centers to the established and emerging markets of Asia was particularly important, enabling fast and stable downloads for users.

In addition, we provided Dedicated Servers and Virtual Servers in the USA for one-off and development projects. Given Leaseweb’s'global footprint, 6Waves regards Leaseweb as a partner they can grow with as they look towards the future.
