300000 servers (the cloud) vs a FEW servers

#21crucialPosted 10/4/2013 1:25:58 PM
MS owns 300,000 servers with more added every month and they rent them as well,they have over a million running but they do not own them all,by the time X1 take's off they will own many more.

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

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


The 300k is just for live. Its their part reservation of azure. By the time the Xbox one ceases production in 2026 that number will be comically small in comparison to the rest of it.

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

It will have issues, and it won't be yours to bare and only us who are buying the Xbox One. So you have nothing to worry about kid~


.....

I'm wondering if you guys even want the best for your money or not.

Well, all they actually want is the box and don't really care for any of the extra stuff.

Why do people show how many times servers go down. Amazon Cloud servers go down too. Multiple times a year.

No it's not, it has been stated, already in this thread and multiple others, it's for MS office and other businesses to rent also. There's also no telling how many are real and how many are virual.

It's because the TC made the implication that Microsofts servers are immune to failures such as the ones that happened to GTA online.

It adds further question as to whether or not cloud computing really is the way to go, especially for video games, since it would mean that if the cloud goes down, you won't be able to play any game that utilizes it for computations.

Microsoft's phantom hypervisor servers are not the issue. The problem is, even if they had the hardware and software support, which they don't, they have serious bandwidth issues, so it is all moot. Windows 8-2? No thanks.

Then TC made the wrong implication then. Nothing in existence immunes to failures however the chance for Microsofts cloud to go down is far far less than GTA's servers. And cloud is the future, there is no doubt about it. The whole industry is heading this way and the reliability of the service has been increasing very fast.

I made no such implications. I simply said comparing the two as equals is idiotic.

I fully expect Xbox to have some issues. No service is perfect. But to automatically assume that R*'s problems are the future for MS is just dumb.
