Locations

Nitrado operates with fully-owned hardware in seven tier-3 data centers across the globe, ensuring low latencies world-wide.

The locations and the partners we’re working with are hand-picked and must fulfill an extensive list of requirements regarding quality, reliability, security and response time. Instead of simply outsourcing all tasks to external companies, Nitrado staff is regularly on-site at our data centers to install new hardware, perform maintenance work and to ensure that our quality requirements are met.

Our locations also have direct “peerings” with several large Internet Service Providers. That means that your game traffic will take the shortest internet route to you, ensuring the lowest ping possible.

Matériel

Nitrado est entièrement propriétaire de son matériel. Alors que de nombreux autres fournisseurs de serveurs louent simplement le matériel sur lequel leurs serveurs fonctionnent, nous disposons d'une flexibilité totale en ce qui concerne les composants matériels que nous utilisons et les logiciels qui s'exécutent sur eux.

Nous n'utilisons que du matériel de qualité serveur, optimisé spécifiquement pour les serveurs de jeux.

CPU

Nitrado n'installe actuellement que des processeursIntel Xeon de dernière génération. Parce que nous sommes unIntel Partner, nous avons souvent accès aux nouveaux modèles de CPU avant même qu'ils n'arrivent sur le marché, nous apportant toujours une longueur d'avance.

Nous exécutons jusqu'à44 cœurs dans un seul serveur, ce qui nous permet d'échapper aux fluctuations courantes de l'utilisation des ressources.

Pour les grands serveurs de jeu avec beaucoup de fentes de joueur, cependant,la fréquence d'horloge élevée est plus importante que d'avoir beaucoup de noyaux. C'est pourquoi nous avons une grande variété de modèles de CPU différents dans notre arsenal, et notre système affectera automatiquement votre serveur de jeu à une configuration matérielle qui assure une grande expérience de jeu.

SSD Storage

All of our game servers exclusively use enterprise-grade SSD storage. This heavily benefits games with large worlds, as this data is constantly written to and read from the storage. This way we ensure minimum loading times while playing and also during server updates and restarts.

ECC RAM

Nos serveurs utilisent tous le code de correction d'erreurError-Correcting Code (ECC) RAM.

ECC RAM détecte et corrige automatiquement les erreurs qui se produisent dans la mémoire. Ces erreurs ne se produisent pas trop souvent, mais lorsqu'elles se produisent, elles peuvent potentiellement conduire à la corruption des données et même à des pannes si seule la RAM standard était utilisée.

C'est pourquoi nous optons pour un peu plus de stabilité et utilisons exclusivement de la RAM ECC sur nos serveurs.

Reliability

Even the best hardware can break. Because of that, all of our important components are redundant, and on top of that we regularly create backups of all game server systems.

DDoS Protection

Having a DDoS protection is nothing special. What counts is to offer one that actually works.

Our in-house networking expertise allows us to employ a three-layered approach to DDoS protection, combining different techniques to achieve the maximum effect.

  • Firstly, our partnerships with Internet Service Providers and our broad network ensure that our connections aren’t “clogged up” by high incoming traffic. Also, many large-scale attacks don’t even reach our networks, as they’re filtered beforehand by our partner companies.
  • Secondly, we use hardware appliances on the edge of our network, that scan the incoming traffic, detect attacks and block them, leaving the legitimate traffic unharmed.
  • Thirdly, we work directly with game developers to employ measures that are specifically tailored towards the games we run. Instead of just relying on off-the-shelf solutions, we deeply analyze and understand the network traffic of our games and can therefor distinguish incoming attacks from legitimate traffic.

These measures combined result in a stable network that is resilient against any type of DDoS attack.

Power

All of our servers run with two separate Power Supply Units (PSUs). These PSUs are also connected to completely independent power feeds.

Should any of the two PSUs ever fail, the server will remain running without interruption. Due to the two separate feeds, even a large-scale power failure at the data center would remain unnoticed by anyone playing on these servers.

Network

Similar to the power supply, all of our core network components are redundant. This makes our network setup very resilient against hardware failure, should it ever occur.

On top of that, our high network bandwidth, both internally and externally, ensures that your game traffic is never impacted by anything else that is happening within our network.

Backups

Your game world and your progress are valuable to you, which is why they are valuable to us. To avoid data loss under any circumstances, we regularly create backups of your complete server and store them on separate host systems.

You can use these backups yourself and restore them through the Nitrado Web Interface, should you want to do so. Of course, should a hardware failure ever occur, we would automatically restore those backups for you.

On top of that, we give you full access to your game save files for all games where we’re allowed to do so. This allows you to create your own, local backups for even more security.
