Application hosting and infrastructure service provider i3D.net has chosen Equinix to support its worldwide gaming platform. In turn, the partners will accelerate global online gaming growth.
i3D.net provides a reliable, low-latency network with thousands of servers spread over six continents. The provider is headquartered in the Netherlands and was recently acquired by Ubisoft in 2019.
The rapidly growing hosting leader serves both Ubisoft customers and other industry-leading gaming publishers. It has designed its ONE Platform to better suit the unique scalability requirements of the gaming industry. Most of all, i3D.net is committed to providing the best user experience.
However, i3D has faced a boost in activity on its gaming platform. So, the provider decided to partner with Equinix to gain that same proximity to its users. The Platform Equinix has over 38 data centers across the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Europe. Thus, this integration will allow i3D.net to deliver latency-free connectivity, assuring a snug gameplay experience.
Check out how we work together with our technology partner @Equinix and customers like @UbiMassive to bolster our network and deliver the lowest possible latency to gamers across the globe! 🕹 https://t.co/jwQxUK9ysl

Rick Sloot, who serves the role of Chief Operating Officer at i3D.net, had this to say:
Our network is one of the most important pillars of our company. Having healthy interconnection services that connect the i3D.net network with Platform Equinix means we can deliver the lowest latency to our end users, removing the frustration of in-game lag. Equinix’s interconnection services are extremely reliable and powerful, allowing us to grow anywhere in the world.
The widespread cloud usage and access have revolutionized the development, delivery, and playing of games.
Equinix is the basis for i3D.net’s one interface. It deploys 40 interconnections from AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure to assign gaming traffic to expand numerous cloud accounts based on players’ demands.
Matt George, who serves the role of Director of Segment Marketing, EMEA, Equinix, had this to say:
With online gaming undergoing an unprecedented surge in popularity, Equinix can strategically support i3D.net in delivering the best possible user experience to gamers around the world. Gamers are always striving to level up, pushing themselves to better their skills and expanding their game base; they expect nothing less from developers and providers. With new levels of demand, gaming platforms must be supported by robust digital infrastructure to enable the transfer of information at high speeds to ensure smooth game playing, while also offering the utmost security to protect sensitive player details.
Since i3D has modified its digital infrastructure, it can now offer the needed scalability and an instant immersive gaming experience, regardless of location.
