Cloud hosting and traditional virtual server hosting systems are being used by the Major League Gaming association in an effort to manage the institution's IT needs.
According to a recent TechTarget report, the company is using services, such as a game VPS, to manage its IT services and host data, websites and other critical information.
The report said the company now boasts more than 4.5 million users monthly. As a result, it maintains many of the enterprise-class systems used by more traditional businesses.
As a result, the company has turned to a virtual server hosting solution that also uses cloud computing technologies to manage its IT infrastructure and provide the services necessary to maintain the league's day-to-day activities.
Brian Corrigan, CTO at Major League Gaming, told the news source the MLG initially wanted to move just its databases to a hosted server, but over time, it decided to integrate almost all of its systems with a hosting provider.
A recent Web Hosting Geeks report said businesses can use virtual server hosting to deploy enterprise-class services by opting for a dedicated or virtual private server plan. These advanced hosting solutions can offer high levels of stability and performance, the report said.
