"Having worked in the online entertainment segment of the interactive entertainment industry, I have a broad perspective on the various technologies and middleware solutions that have been offered over the past five years. The Bigworld™ Technology is simply the most advanced and comprehensive solution that has ever been offered for massively multiplayer game development. It features an end-to-end package of client, server, and tools technology that cannot be matched by any competitor.
There are many solutions available for the client-side of game development including the Unreal Engine, LithTech, and Renderware. However, these solutions do not offer online capabilities and, therefore, provide only 30%-50% of the technology required to implement a massively multiplayer product. There are solutions that provide massively multiplayer capabilities, but none of these have sufficiently robust and advanced client technology required to implement cutting-edge entertainment products.
In addition to offering a comprehensive package, Bigworld™ offers unique, industry leading features. For example, the load balancing technology, which is required to maintain a proper distribution of work across multiple server machines, is based on a proprietary algorithm for segmenting the world and assigning it to the server machine with the lowest load. In addition, the technology is based on a uniquely clean and flexible architecture. The process of porting the client to Xbox and the server to Windows took only a few weeks. Normally, this process would take about 3 months. All of the technical people at Microsoft who have worked with the technology, including the Xbox advanced technology team which has exposure to a diverse set of technologies and companies, have commented on the elegance and excellent design of the Bigworld™ architecture.
BigWorld employs software engineers who have a rigorous academic background and have demonstrated a high aptitude for mathematics, problem solving, and engineering. As a result, the company applies a level of scientific excellence and innovation to its solutions that many other companies cannot match.
In the 18 months that we have worked with the technology, it has been remarkably stable. We have seen only a handful of software crashes that are due to programmer error. This is in contrast to other products where dozens or hundreds of programmer errors would be seen over the course of product development. In addition, the team has put in software that simulates the high latencies of Internet connections. The product performs better under those conditions than nearly every other competing product."
“BigWorld has been quite clearly architected from the start for rapid development of world-class massively-multiplayer persistent worlds with extraordinary performance and scalability.”
