Customer success story: Global Gaming Company Uses Zenlayer BMC in Brazil
Customers across multiple verticals are benefiting from Zenlayer’s strategic partnership with Dell. For example, a global gaming company based in APAC wanted to expand into Brazil and give their users lower latency and more reliable connections to their game servers. Zenlayer provided the company with 250 custom bare metal Dell servers, as well as IP transit with local Brazilian carriers and dedicated connections among global PoPs — for 25% lower costs than the client had previously been paying for comparable services.
The client’s Brazilian customers noticed an immediate impact with greater speeds. After just six weeks, the client reported an increase in user satisfaction by 33%. And within six months, their users in Brazil increased by 60%. Today the customer has over 400 servers in the country, and are expanding to additional global locations.
Jump on Board with Edge Computing
Now is a great time to explore what’s possible with Zenlayer and Dell Technologies with edge computing — especially when considering that worldwide spending on edge computing is on pace to reach $176 billion in 2022, which is an increase of 14.8% from last year. (1)
Why is edge computing experiencing such rapid growth? It’s simple: Companies are looking to take pressure off their public cloud environments, and push computing and storage functions closer to data source, particularly fast-growing markets throughout places like Asia, Latin America, and EMEA.
Edge computing is reaching the mainstream and will soon be a top need for global companies. Companies should act now to deploy edge computing, and supercharge business transformation.
