Friday, 8th February 2008 at 11:26 am
Nottingham, UK. 08 February 2008 - Virtual World, Online Game and Technology developer Monumental Games today announce a strategic partnership with GNi to provide industry- level hosting to a growing list of technology licensees.
Global hosting, infrastructure planning, and roll-out activities are some of the most important decisions facing managers of successful Virtual World and Online Game projects. Monumental’s growing list of technology licensees are launching Virtual World and MMO products into the global marketplace. These products depend on mission critical hosting, infrastructure and bandwidth solutions to succeed. Monumental’s customers need hosting solutions that provide sustainable competitive advantage, long term cost savings and solid customer support in equal measure both to launch and sustain growth within the global marketplace.
The Monumental Technology Suite (MTS) is a complete suite of tools that allows organisations to develop Virtual Worlds and Online Games for a wide range of applications (including computer based training (CBT), entertainment, corporate intranets, and collaborative environments). It makes sense to partner with organizations that specialise in the hosting of such large scale global projects. Monumental is happy to announce a strategic partnership with Global NetOptex, Inc. (GNi), which will see them offer world-class hosting services and solutions to licensees of the Monumental Technology Suite.
“Making great Virtual Worlds and Massively Multi-player Online games with our technology suite is only one of many aspects of developing and launching a successful product. The GNi guys know what they’re doing and specialize in games, so we are proudp and confident to offer their services to our technology licensees. Our partnership with GNi offers MTS licensees a complete hosting solution from pre-production through to launch and beyond” said Rik Alexander, Monumental’s CEO.
“Our partnership with Monumental continues to show that great developers know that well built and managed infrastructure is the foundation of delivery of a successful Online Game or Virtual World and we are pleased that Monumental has recognized and chosen GNi to provide this critical foundation”, stated Philip Bouchard, GNi CEO
