[We Partner] OVHcloud US announced a partnership with Liquipedia, world’s largest esports wiki

OVHcloud US announced on the 24th of February a partnership with Liquipedia, the best esports resource for live game results, tournament overviews, team and player profiles, game information, and more. OVHcloud’s high-performance cloud solutions will help Team Liquid power web, database, testing and development initiatives across the esports encyclopedia which the international esports organization operates. With more than 700 million unique page views per year globally, the site is the largest esports wiki on the planet – with the entire industry flocking to the site for information related to the top gaming properties.

 

“It’s an honor for OVHcloud US to have been chosen by the world’s largest esports wiki based on the technology preferences of Team Liquid’s chief information officer and team,” said Jeffrey Gregor, General Manager, OVHcloud US. “OVHcloud has considerable international experience working with gamers and we’re pleased to count Liquipedia’s 38 million annual unique users among those we support. We look forward to working closely with both Liquipedia and Team Liquid as they scale both their content and platforms.”

 

The larger Team Liquid organization relies on dedicated OVHcloud bare metal servers as the core to online properties and Liquipedia. High-end servers support web and database for the site, while smaller servers drive testing and development for the company’s new properties.

 

“OVHcloud’s approach is different – rooted in better performance and reliability through excellent uptime; burstable bandwidth capabilities that allow us to deal with immense traffic peaks; superior DDoS protection that’s critical in absorbing and fighting against cyberattacks; and lower total cost of ownership considering the unlimited bandwidth and bare metal servers that we rely on to service millions of gamers and developers worldwide,” said Erik Saler, head of Liquipedia. “This allows our team to invest more time and resources in talent, development and growth – rather than being stuck with unnecessary vendor costs and hassle.”

 

The Liquipedia team will also leverage OVHcloud solutions as they introduce new features and platforms into the future. From growing to a multi-server setup for high availability in the event of physical hardware failure to separating web and database to horizontally scale as traffic to the site grows – the possibilities are endless.
