"Our collaboration with Gcore's cutting-edge CDN technology significantly narrows the gap between the game and its players by delivering assets at unparalleled speed. This integration into our new Xsolla Launcher sets the bar for high-performance service and empowers our customers to focus on what they do best: create captivating games." Xsolla engineers chose Gcore CDN for its global network of 180+ edge servers, ensuring uninterrupted delivery of game assets worldwide. With a network capacity exceeding 110 TBps and connectivity to 14,000 peering partners, Gcore averts congestion and disruptions, even during major releases. Operating under strict security measures and meticulous server maintenance, Gcore guarantees exceptional availability. Additionally, Gcore’s CDN integration with its proprietary DNS services further minimizes the risk of service interruptions or outages. “We're thrilled to be part of Xsolla's pioneering solution, driving the gaming industry forward,” commented Ilya Matveev, Business Development Director at Gcore. “Xsolla Launcher brings flexibility to the industry, allowing companies to implement a D2C approach - a way to monetize their existing game fan base without the burden of platform fees.
