The Anti-DDoS Game Servers, built for gaming

Fortify your infrastructure

The Game servers benefit from a specialised anti-DDoS infrastructure which is connected to each server’s input/output. This system detects even the slightest attempted attack, so there won't be any lag during your online games.

This technology means that the Game servers offer tolerance to the millisecond and anti-DDoS protection adapted specifically for online gaming.

Configurations optimised for gaming

Intel i5 or i7, from 16 to 32 GB of RAM and SSD storage, the So you Start Game range gives you CPU and RAM performances adapted for you to install your games. Make the most of their power to configure your game server and integrate your Mumble or TeamSpeak services.
