is to host the browser-based InstantAction
3D game platform, it was reported recently. The Portland, Oregon based provider has worked for the past 18 months to prepare for the launch of InstantAction, which took place on February 24, 2009. .
Hosting the InstantAction platform requires a large array of managed services, dedicated servers, load balancers, virtualized environments and continuous data protection are just a handful of the core components we provide this platform, explained Thomas Brenneke, President of Network Redux. High availability is also paramount, where technologies such as VRRP, link aggregation and data replication play a significant role in the network we have designed.
InstantAction was created by game and technology developer GarageGames. It allows game developers and publishers to put their games online. Players log on through their web browser and start or join a game. Games are streamed to end users and do not require software downloads. Nine free games are currently available for users to play.
According to Network Redux, it operates two secure data centers where it deploys and manages its own vendor-certified hardware, currently specified as: Dell PowerEdge 2950 servers with 8x2.5Ghz Xeon (E5405) quad cores, 32GB Memory, 6×450GB SAS-15K RAID-10 storage (hot swappable), and dual redundant hot swappable power supplies.
