Edgegap is a leading game hosting service provider focused on providing the best online experience for players.
"We have game studios that have players from all over the world. Being able to provide the best online experience to their players wherever they are is a competitive advantage for us. Dealing with high or unstable latency is one of the worst gaming experiences, and as more and more games are monetized throughout the lifecycle, having a consistently great experience becomes a question of revenue generation for game studios. With AWS Local Zones, Edgegap can now deploy even closer to where the players are, elevating their gaming experience to new heights. For some of our clients, such as Triple Hill Interactive and their fighting game Die by the Blade, being able to host a worldwide 1 versus 1 online tournament in the best conditions is something they simply could not do using traditional service providers. For others, such as Agog and their fast-paced arena shooter Brutal Grounds, every match must be deployed in the best location for all players to provide a fair environment. For the indie developer Cofa Games and their MOBA Awakening of Heroes, being able to leverage an ever-growing number of locations through a simple API call is a time saver. AWS Local Zones gives us more flexibility to enhance the player experience in all these scenarios."

JackTrip Labs combines the latest digital audio and edge computing technologies to make the performance of music over the Internet feasible and accessible to everyone. JackTrip Labs was spun out as an independent public-benefit corporation from the JackTrip Foundation, a collaboration between Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) and Silicon Valley software entrepreneurs.
“JackTrip uses low-latency audio hardware and digital signal processing edge servers to enable musicians to perform together live over their home Internet connections. AWS Local Zones makes it easy for us to extend our application into critical markets without having to learn new APIs or tools. We're excited to make JackTrip available to musicians in Boston, Houston, Miami, and additional Local Zones as they become available.”
Mike Dickey, CEO - JackTrip Labs
Masomo, founded in 2015, is an interactive entertainment company transforming the power of social in mobile games.
“We deploy select portions of our latency-sensitive game servers in various locations across the world in order to reach the breadth of our end users with lower latency. Providing end-users with low-latency gameplay is an important part of ensuring fairness and consistent player experience. With AWS Local Zones, we get the single-digit millisecond latency and proximity in lots of cities across the country, helping us improve end-users latency, reduce churn, and provide end-users with a great experience.”

Mindbody is the leading technology platform for the fitness, wellness, and beauty industries.
“We have a portfolio of interdependent applications running in our existing on-premises data centers. We have been looking to move these workloads to the public cloud for some time. However, it is daunting to migrate such complex, interdependent applications to the cloud at the same time while ensuring a seamless experience for our end users. AWS Local Zones have solved a significant problem for us here. We are using Local Zones to migrate our complex, legacy on-premises applications to AWS without an expensive revamp of our architecture. With a Direct Connect to Local Zones, we are able to establish a hybrid environment that provides ultra-low latency communication between applications running in the Local Zone and our on-premises installations. In turn, this has enabled us to migrate applications incrementally, simplifying our migrations drastically while reducing any business risk with on-going hybrid deployments.”

Netflix is the world's leading streaming entertainment service with over 190 million paid memberships in over 190 countries enjoying TV series, documentaries, and feature films across a wide variety of genres and languages.
“We have many artists and content creators who can benefit from bringing the on-premises infrastructure they use day-to-day to the cloud. However, every second counts, especially when it comes to the time it takes to compile and render 3D models and animations. For some time, we have wanted to move these artists' workstations to AWS in order to take advantage of the performance, elasticity, and cost benefits of the cloud. However, due to the interactive nature of these applications, our artists need very low latency access to their workstations to have a good working experience. AWS Local Zones, which bring cloud resources closer to our artists, have been a game-changer for these applications. By taking advantage of access to AWS's highly performant and cost-effective compute resources, we have been able to migrate portions of our content creation process to AWS Local Zones, while ensuring an even better experience for artists.”

Ubitus is a cloud gaming technology leader.
“We deploy latency-sensitive game servers all over the world to be closer to gamers. Providing our users with a consistent low-latency gameplay is an important part of ensuring they have a great experience. To guarantee a consistent user experience, in the past, we tried to bring game servers closer to players in different cities across the country, but it was too time-intensive and costly. AWS Local Zones are a game changer for us. Now, we can easily deploy and test clusters of game servers in lots of cities across the country, ensuring all customers get a more consistent experience regardless of where they are located.”
Wesley Kuo, CEO - Ubitus
