MMO portals Aeria Games and IAHGames announced the integration of BitTorrent’s Delivery Network Accelerator (DNA) content delivery service to distribute their massively multiplayer online games and patches. Based on the popular BitTorrent client, BitTorrent DNA is designed to improve the speed and reliability of content delivery with peer network acceleration. The service targets the needs of commercial content publishers, including video game developers and distributors, as well as media companies and software providers. According to BitTorrent, DNA is able to automatically detect game play on a user’s system and, through BitTorrent’s congestion control technology, eliminate any impact on game play as well as other sensitive real-time applications, such as Voice over IP (VoIP) calls, streaming media, or internet browsing. Founded in 2006 and based in Silicon Valley, Aeria Games offers a variety of PC MMOs and casual titles on its site, such as Shaiya and Last Chaos. IAHGames is a Singapore-based publisher, operator, and distributor of both online and console games in SouthEast asia, hosting titles like Hellgate: London, Top Speed, and EA Sports FIFA Online 2. “By adopting the BitTorrent DNA content delivery service, we have increased the percentage of successful downloads of our game clients and patches while saving on bandwidth costs,” says IAHGames deputy CEO David Ng. “It plugs right into our existing infrastructure, giving us a greater degree of control over how we distribute our titles with reliability and efficiency.”
