Gaming audiences are in high demand, and with hundreds of thousands of new games and apps being created every year, differentiation is key to a games success. All game developers are using compute, whether they are leveraging a public or private cloud, but the ultimate goal is to be as close to players as is possible.

In this talk, StackPath's VP of Edge Security and Technology Parternships, Praful Lalchandani, will discuss how utilizing edge compute for your hybrid or private cloud strategy can improve the experience, customer retention, and security of online games. This talk focuses on the implementation of an edge network for gaming, for the development, delivery, and defense of user and gaming content.


Attendees will better understand the implications of a true edge network, and how proximity to end-users can make a world of difference.

Intended Audience
