Pando Content Delivery Cloud Now Increasing Download Completion Rates for Turbine, Ndoors, Gala-Net, LevelUp, and Outspark
NEW YORK, Sep 16, 2009 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) — Pando Networks, a leading provider of Content Delivery Cloud services, today announced that several more leading game companies have deployed Pando’s services during the past four months. Turbine, Ndoors, Gala-Net, LevelUp and Outspark are the most recent leading game companies to deploy Pando’s Content Delivery Cloud services to optimize their online game distribution.
The Pando Content Delivery Cloud seamlessly integrates with any CDN configuration and optimizes data delivery from both CDN servers and peer nodes. The Pando service accelerates download speeds while significantly reducing delivery costs. The Pando Content Delivery Cloud is more scalable than a stand-alone CDN delivery service because as download demand increases, Pando network capacity expands and performance improves. This is especially important for online game distribution as new releases of popular games frequently result in a sudden surge in download demand that can degrade CDN performance and the end user experience.
“We are proud that leaders in the rapidly expanding online game business such as Turbine, Ndoors, Gala-Net, LevelUp and Outspark have selected Pando Networks to optimize the delivery of their popular games,” said Robert Levitan, CEO of Pando Networks.
“Digital distribution is an important part of any online games acquisition strategy and Turbine is always looking to improve the download experience for our players,” said Chris Dyl, CTO of Turbine. “After testing Pando’s technology to distribute Turbine’s products, we were very pleased with the results. Not only did we see an increase in download speeds and completion rates, the Pando downloader demonstrated that it would significantly reduce Turbine’s content delivery costs by utilizing a state-of-the-art peer-to-peer download technology.”
Pando also provides partners with detailed performance data that goes far beyond traditional reporting metrics. Julio Vieitez, Managing Director for Level Up! Brazil, said, “Now that we are working with Pando, we are receiving daily business metrics that help us better understand the gamer experience with downloading our games as well as the economics of customer acquisition and support.”
“Pando delivers aesthetically pleasing and technically elegant solutions that give our users the top-tier service we demand,” said Derek Marcial, VP, Engineering of Outspark. “Since we began using their services, we’ve seen improved download completion rates and increased overall efficiency. More importantly, they are always responsive to our needs, and their quick and agile responses to our requests make them one of our preferred partners.”
Pando Networks now optimizes the digital distribution of some of the most popular online games including The Lord of the Rings Online(TM), Dungeons and Dragons Online(TM), MapleStory, Grand Chase, Ragnarok, PerfectWorld, Fiesta, Luna Online, Rappelz, Flyff and Atlantica Online.
