Delivering the best gaming experiences to a global audience

The right infrastructure means “game on”

When your game is released, you need a solution that’s ready to deliver millions of copies—fast. It not only needs to scale at launch, it needs to flex for those unexpected spikes in demand. Equally important, your gaming infrastructure should support your video and content-sharing strategy. If it can help protect you from malicious website attacks, especially during critical launch periods, all the better.

Limelight's solution for Gaming meets all these challenges and provides the following benefits:

Fast Downloads

Eliminate one of the most frustrating aspects of game play—slow downloads!

Simplified Video Sharing and Streaming Video Delivery

Deliver your game videos anywhere in the globe on virtually any device, to your gamers or Esports fans, without the need for additional encoders or other specialized equipment.

Cloud Leverage

We provide delivery, storage, and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services from the cloud, so you never have to make a large capital investment in infrastructure.

Enhanced Monetization

Our global Content Delivery Network (CDN) ensures full monetization of your game assets with scalable, high capacity delivery of your beta, gold copy, and DLC.

Secure Delivery

Choose from a range of security options including geo-fencing, SSL, DDoS attack mitigation, and others, to protect your game delivery and game website.
