Decentralized cloud enables fast, hyper-local gaming across all computing devices
Vancouver, Canada, November 8, 2018—Today, mimik technology inc. announced that 3BLACKDOT (3BD), the leading gaming culture company, is now using the mimik edge cloud platform technology and edgeSDK to create new gaming experiences and utility applications across all devices. mimik’s decentralized cloud platform reduces latency, bandwidth usage and the cost of central cloud hosting while improving data privacy and enabling faster application development.
3BD also plans to distribute the mimik edgeSDK to game developers to give them the ability to communicate directly in realtime across devices cost-effectively and without the need for internet access. This initiative promises to create a new breed of games by enabling “edge” devices such as game consoles, PCs, laptops, and mobile phones with server capability.
“Improved means of user acquisition, stellar entertainment experiences, and affordable, globally scalable infrastructure are three of the top attributes developers are asking for in their video games. Using the mimik platform, we strive to deliver on all three of these by creating unique, unparalleled gaming experiences for our community,” said Angelo Pullen, co-founder and CEO, 3BD. “We’re using the mimik platform to enhance our players’ experiences. mimik’s platform enables direct, hyper-local communication between gaming devices, while also being able to accommodate peer-to-peer interactions around the world. This will reduce hosting, development and maintenance costs, improve latency, reduce bandwidth usage, and will open opportunities to create experiences not feasible using traditional centralized cloud approaches.”
The mimik edgeSDK enables serverless microservice development—a standard cloud-based software development model—on edge devices running iOS, Android, Raspbian, macOS, Windows or Linux. With mimik, microservices can communicate on the same device and/or across devices in a peer-to-peer fashion whether the gamers are playing on the same LAN or on networks across the globe. Similarly, gaming influencers can utilize their own devices and the devices of their fans to create new experiences within their own private cloud.
“We are thrilled to partner with 3BD to help bring gaming developers a faster, less costly, and more engaging user experience. Our decentralized edge cloud platform offers many benefits to the gaming community, and we’re excited to partner with 3BD to make it happen,” said Fay Arjomandi, co-founder and Chief Product Officer, mimik.
