large software updates delivered worldwide pblockquotep idpullquotepblockquote p At the beginning of each 12week racing season members update their software for the latest track and car information Software updates range from 45GB for existing players and up to 30GB for new members and customers had complained of inconsistent download performance iRacing implemented Limelights CDN to improve performance and ensure all quarterly updates run smoothly In addition Limelights peering relationships with major global Internet service providers ISPs ensure that regardless of where players are located or how they connect to the internet they have the fastest download possible p p Were not set up to build out our global infrastructure to make our downloads available to every location on the planet said Nick Bailey Senior DevOps Engineer at iRacing We chose to partner with Limelight to do that so we can focus on making the auto racing simulations as detailed as possible and ensure our members can experience them in a timely fashion p p Limelights high cache hit ratio ensures players can quickly download game files from local pointsofpresence rather than accessing them from distant locations In addition iRacing is using Limelight Origin Storage which allows game files to be accessed and delivered quickly even if they arent already in cache These capabilities together with Limelights high data throughput rates extensive peering relationships and private global network lead to faster download speeds for iRacings software updates p p No one wants slow performance or to wait around for slow downloads especially on a car racing simulator said Steve MillerJones Vice President of Product Strategy at Limelight Limelights private global network makes it possible for iRacing to significantly accelerate extremely large downloads as well as global game play for all its members p p A full case study is available a referrerpolicyunsafeurl targetblank
