Gamersyde is looking for hosting partners

Gamersyde is looking for hosting partners

I'm sure most of you have had to deal with rather slow downloads when the site gets a bit busier than usual. Now that Gamersyde is almost ready to launch (2-3 weeks) we are looking for hosting partners for our videos. Based on the same system as the current openxbox/ps3 mirror, a hosting partner sets up his own page with its own advertising banners (as long as they are legal). If you can provide an unmetered 100 mbits or more link with some basic server options, please contact us at hosting(at)gamersyde.com. We may also be interested in that type of hosting at a good price.

This site (or some of it's mirrors) actually is one of the few websites where I get almost my max speed when downloading.. Which is a lot since I have 24Mbit/s..

I just want to wish you to find good partners, and to tell everyone to give the torrents a chance.

You guys deserve the best for the amazing work you've done for the past few years, hope everything works out for you .

Actually I find downloads at Xboxyde to be extraordinary fast. With a 16MBit DSL2 line I usually download at 500-600 kb/s. That´s much better than what I get at some of the so-called "professional" sites that give you 20kb/s downloads and are literally forcing their subscription models on their users.

With hosting I can´t help, but if one day you also want to add a German section, I would actually be interested to contribute.

Well the main issue is that most of the time the downloads are plenty fast enough, but when a file is very popular, every slows down to a crawl.

That's absolutely true! I remember the first video of the Halo 3 beta was barely streaming and the download was at like 30kb/s. I hope you guys find the hosting boosts you're looking for!

i think for free website blim ur entitled to say

"Here lads if u think the sites slow...tuff shit!"

i dont come here for the download speeds..more for the community aspect...which im sure is y most others do...of course the fact that u have news very very up to dat is simply a bonus
Commented on 2007-06-11 14:24:35
Yeah when we use openxbox360 it's very fast. Xboxyde=Great Videos+Fast download from Openxbox360

BTW Blim, will Gamersyde do the same thing that you did on Xboxyde/Playsyde? No preview or review?

Well, gametrailers is free and fast too.

Ya know, that's what torrents are ideal for. If a file is really popular, use torrents only. The download speeds will slowly increase by time. If you allow quite a nice upload speed from the "seed server" to the first couple of downloaders, then they make a nice base for the following leechers. But of course, torrents have their downsides.

The main seeder has a 50 mbits connection.

Well as long as you guys aren't breaking the bank to provide great speeds to us then that's fine. Cause more than often the speed is very fast, and you always offer torrents anyways and those obviously take the load off you guys and really help in times of high traffic.

Try cachefly. They seem to be pretty popular and do sponsoring. (they do digg)

I LIKE GAMETRAILERS

Good for you.
Commented on 2007-06-11 22:45:06
I'll use the torrents more often when I can.. Since my upload is also 24Mbit that helps I think..

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX FFA deathmatch is pretty fun in OW even though it's totally not balanced. Great Tracer practice. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog The Orville episode 3 was amazing. Very heavy topic but handled it extremely well. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wasn't really setting up any specific comparison at all. I said modern phones and many PCs. That's pretty vague. You can set whatever limits on that you want. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Granted.. synthetic benchmarks are just that.. but in Geekbench 4 a Snapdragon 835 can outperform a Q9550.. which is definitely faster than the E6600. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX My personal history of personal computing goes back to 8-bit computers. I think 2017 ARM CPUs are amazing. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: I said E6600.. and its single core performance in synthetic benchmarks is certainly comparable. But yes. You can go back to the 80s. I didn't say anything about them being modern. (4 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, a snapdragon 835 does not have computing power of a Q6600 (9 years old). Do you really want to go further in time to prove your statement made sense? (4 Hours ago)
