Shadow transforms low-end devices into high-end gaming PCs through the power of cloud computing. Users can access their full-featured, private computer in the cloud from any device at any time, whether it be an old PC or Mac, TV or smartphone – devices which otherwise lack the power to run high-performance games.
The company needed its cloud infrastructure to live near a dense connectivity hub, including carriers, internet exchanges, ISPs and their end-users to ensure they matched the accessible, high-end service promised to subscribers.
Shadow deployed its first environment at Interxion’s Amsterdam campus, allocating its data in one of the best-connected cities in the world, due to its central location in Europe. Colocation also allowed Shadow the flexibility to grow its infrastructure to close the gap between even more users. The company expanded to Interxion’s Marseille campus, one of the world’s most dynamic content hubs, connected through more than 14 submarine cable systems. Colocating their servers with Interxion placed Shadow on the forefront of the Internet, providing the resiliency to cope with potential surges in users. Furthermore, the 24/7 support provided at Interxion’s campuses ensured Shadow’s infrastructure would be carefully watched and quickly cared for in the event of a problem before users could be affected.
"At Shadow, we require the most direct, shortest paths between our infrastructure and our gamers, and we need a company that can keep up with us. Interxion does that. They understand our business, how we work and what we need. They are a trusted partner.”
David Chanial Head of Infrastructure, Shadow
