Congratulations Hi-Rez Studios for receiving a coveted 2012 Excalibur Award!

The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) wrote this on its website about Hi-Rez Studios’ award: “Not long ago, slow networks and servers were restricting gamers’ ability to enjoy fast-paced multi-player games online. To meet their business and customer requirements, Hi-Rez implemented a “bare metal cloud” hosting solution offered by Atlanta-based IT Infrastructure provider Internap. With Internap’s bare metal cloud solution, Hi-Rez is achieving higher economic efficiencies — and the superior performance that its customers demand — with the high levels of flexibility and scalability that conventional cloud services offer.”
