I, too, believe in a random number pulled out of hat by a company that's been called out repeatedly for lies and misinformation.

Fun. Enjoy your blisters from circular j****** one another.


300,000 is a very small number for a tech company the scale of Microsoft.



IIRC the servers are going to have virtual servers.

I do agree with how that is a small number though. Especially since those 300,000 are being shared with things other than XBL and some games themselves (IE: CoD) can have 250,000 players online at once by itself.

Yeah, it's not as if those 300000 servers ever have any issues!

You mean the hard trolling continues.

The point of my op was that it's completely STUPID to look to R*'s cloud problems and compare them to an UNLAUNCHED service.

Besides that their cloud works just fine once you get past the bottleneck of the TUTORIAL that is not functioning properly.

You are aware the Microsoft cloud (Azure) has been around for almost 3 years, right?

The xbox cloud service is no different than their other cloud services, it uses the same servers.

Yes, they had about 30k servers and are in the process of adding an additional 270000.

Any other questions?

Yes, just one: how many of those are ACTUAL servers and not virtual ones?

I PERSONALLY think that Cloud is a work in progress, that will truly shine in maybe 2-3 years. From the way things are going now, MS is obviously serious about investing in it, and I'm sure it will be AWESOME in 2-3 years! So I'm not sure why people are saying that it sucks now, so it will suck in the future too.

People do know that is NOT 300,000 server just for games?

Azure rents server for other things, such as Office applications and Universities.

And people do also know that 300,000 is not a fixed number either. Microsoft is adding tens of thousands of servers to their data centers every month.
