DeepSquare is a renowned, decentralized, sustainable cloud ecosystem emphasizing high-performance computing. At the Metaverse Insider, we had the pleasure of talking to the DeepSquare team about various aspects of their fervent project – covering everything from the infrastructure behind their technology to their ethos and potential use cases.
The Metaverse will embody aspects of almost every industry – however, most people may associate it with gaming and social activities.
There is no doubt that gaming will play a massive role in the mainstream adoption of the Metaverse, and we expect it to be one of the primary drivers to make it happen. Whether by utilizing immersive technologies like VR and AR or by simply keeping with current gaming norms – DeepSquare’s cloud-enabled high-performance computing (HPC) will be essential in the evolution of gaming as we know it.
Making Gaming Sustainable
From the perspective of gaming publishers and related companies alike, there is always the question of how gaming applications will be powered and therefore experienced. With the need for scalable servers to cope with demands like gaming events, companies will not necessarily want their dedicated servers up and running for short periods. DeepSquare has a solution to this via its decentralized network of clusters:
“When companies want to scale fast, we can provide the bare-metal and low latency performance they need for games.” — Charly Mancel (Head of projects and delivery at DeepSquare)
Bare-metal performance and virtualized environments can be economically sustainable, provided you rent the bare-metal clusters for a sustained period. However, if high performance is required for short demand periods, the cost of these servers drastically increases. This is where DeepSquare shines through with its innovative technology.
In adding a layer of affordability to a necessary gaming service, DeepSquare has also ensured they maintain its stance on sustainability – which is often sacrificed at the cost of increasing affordability. Focusing on bleeding-edge technology, DeepSquare utilizes immersion cooling tech at their two sites in Switzerland – cooling their servers and recycling the excess heat to their buildings and local district.
What Does DeepSquare Mean for Gamers?
DeepSquare has the infrastructure and technology to allow gaming companies to scale fast, eliminating unnecessary layers and delivering better performance. But what does this mean for the average gamer?
In this instance, this technology appears to have little impact on the end-user; DeepSquare’s decentralized servers will perform equally to normal servers – allowing access to the same experiences as before. However, there is one crucial difference – cloud gaming will be revolutionized.
DeepSquare’s cloud-enabled HPC means that all processing requirements can be met through their servers – implying that gamers will not personally need the necessary hardware or GPU to run graphically demanding applications. This is an incredible feat of technology and will certainly change how gamers of all caliber access and experience gaming.
Individuals who have tried cloud gaming via render streaming tech have all experienced issues with its current state. Games either unexpectedly crash, lag, or render in such a way that makes the overall experience unplayable. DeepSquare has made this a problem of the past and will most likely define the way we experience games henceforth. No more download times, no more storage issues, AND no more GPU-related barriers – just unprecedented gaming. Check out DeepSquare’s video on render streaming here.
DeepSquare Joins the Blockchain Game Alliance
The Blockchain Game Alliance is an organization committed to promoting the blockchain within the game industry – a perfect fit for DeepSquare’s decentralized ecosystem. This alliance aims to spread awareness about blockchain technologies and encourage adoption by highlighting their potential to foster new ways to create, publish, play, and build strong communities around games.
DeepSquare’s advisor for render streaming is a Unity developer and Product Manager at Android Studio – leading the project at DeepSquare, starting with Unity and demonstrating the potential in this demo.
“We’re pleased to welcome DeepSquare to the Blockchain Game Alliance, joining our growing network of over 500 members globally, who are representing all the sectors of the industry and actively employing blockchain technology within the video game industry.”
“DeepSquare technology aims at providing a decentralized solution so videogames can benefit from lowered servers operating costs and more immersive multiplayers worlds, ultimately benefiting players who explore these worlds” -Sebastian Borget (President of the Blockchain Gaming Alliance)
How Long Will it Take for Cloud-Enabled HPC to Become Mainstream?
DeepSquare’s technology is a vital stepping-stone for the future of blockchain gaming – housing many benefits over traditional gaming norms. Therefore, when can we expect this to become normality for the average gamer?
With cloud and HPC industries converging their technology daily, we can expect massive strides to be made in the years to come. Container technology is becoming an enormous player in this space – bridging the gaps between HPC and the cloud:
By utilizing its immensely powerful cloud-enabled HPC technology, DeepSquare looks ever fruitful. They are entering a multitude of different industries, all while providing functional solutions to improve and evolve the space. DeepSquare is looking more and more promising as the days go by. Keep up to date with their progress; they are taking off as we speak and shaping the games industry as we know it.
