New Online Gaming Company

They provide online card games with a user community, tournaments, and player/viewer subscriptions. They have no idea of how fast they will grow, and uptime is very important to maintain a good reputation in the gaming community. They have a combination of Linux and Windows machines requiring high I/O performance, which ruled out most Cloud providers and made them think only their own datacenter full of physical servers would fit the bill

They have an unpredictable growth rate with potential for large spikes in traffic on weekends

ENKI Solution

Challenge #2

Uptime is crucial to their business model

Redundant networks, self-healing hardware, and full network and application monitoring

They achieve 4-nines of reliability (subject to software reliability)

Challenge #3

Responsiveness requires fast Linux and Windows servers and capable infrastructure
