Capcom Bolsters Online User Experience through Limelight's Global Platform
TEMPE, Ariz., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Limelight Networks (LLNW), a leader in digital presence management, today announced that Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, has selected Limelight for content delivery and digital presence support.
Limelight's global reach enables Capcom to provide the same standard of excellent services to gamers and fans everywhere around the globe.
"Capcom's websites see upwards of one million views per day," said Tom James, Director of Web Technologies at Capcom. "We have to predict as well as prepare for those spikes in views. Having a scalable solution from Limelight is incredibly important to ensuring that our websites are always available. Limelight helps us make certain that our fans have access to our sites, from any device, anywhere, at any time. With Limelight's expertise in the area, we look forward to exploring more ways for Capcom to streamline our operations."
When Capcom began evaluating content delivery providers, it had a very short time to find a new solution. Limelight worked closely with Capcom to orchestrate a smooth and swift transition, which resulted in zero downtime for Capcom customers. By integrating Limelight's massively provisioned global platform into their systems, Capcom's technical team is freed from thinking about maintaining uptime. This means they can focus their creative energies on other projects, thus further optimizing company efficiency.
"Limelight is excited to work with Capcom and to forge a relationship, which we hope to grow in years to come," said Joseph DePalo, senior vice president of content delivery engineering and operations at Limelight. "Capcom has a loyal following of web viewers, and we are committed to making sure their experience is a seamless extension of Capcom's services."
Capcom's iconic brands like Street Fighter® and Resident Evil® engender incredible levels of passion from the gaming community. With Limelight's support, Capcom's web destinations, ranging from its main site www.capcom.com to its community site www.capcom-unity.com, are now a more dynamic and engaging experience.
