“Highwinds has been an important part of the infrastructure behind our Steam platform since 2011. As our customer base grows internationally and we continue to post large year-over-year increases in our numbers, Highwinds remains a vital partner for us. The global reach and massive scalability of Highwinds CDN make it an ideal solution for our game delivery needs.”
– Mike Dunkle, Business Development, Valve Corporation
Over the past several years, Steam has sustained massive increases in its key figures, including sales, total user accounts, daily active users and simultaneous players. Today, over 1,800 games are delivered over Steam to more than 40 million active users, with the number of peak simultaneous players exceeding five million.
Highwinds provides content delivery infrastructure to Valve as part of their global strategy to expand and support Steam, the world’s largest online gaming platform. Valve, a long-time Highwinds customer, is experiencing exponential growth with Steam, and the Highwinds GDN is contributing to the platform’s global reach and popularity.
“We have been working with Highwinds since 2014. As a user, I’m satisfied with the Support Team that can resolve any issue within the service in a few minutes. I made sure that the CDN has a really HIGH level of service and wide geographic coverage. Online monitoring is very useful and can provide much more info about your applications operation. I’m very pleased with a speed of new host deployment. This action takes a few seconds and your new host is ready for connections.”
