DraftKings leads the industry in fantasy sports entertainment using CloudDirect℠ services from Atlantic Metro.
Founded in 2012, DraftKings organizes fantasy sports competitions based on the performance of both individual players and teams. Contests span many sports and athletic divisions including MLB, NHL, NFL, NBA, PGA, Premier League and UEFA Champions League soccer, NASCAR, Canadian Football League, Arena Football League, MMA, and tennis. While other sites limit players to season-long leagues, DraftKings stands out by arranging daily or weekly contests for cash prizes.
DraftKings needed reliable, high-speed access to the cloud. Atlantic Metro met this requirement with their CloudDirect for Amazon Web Services solution. This service gives DraftKings a direct, high-fidelity connection to Amazon Web Services and allows them to transfer data quickly and easily.
CloudDirect for Amazon Web Services is a cloud service solution that makes it easy to establish a dedicated network connection from your premises to AWS. This serves as one of many ways in which Atlantic Metro can connect a business’s office locations with data centers, satellite locations, and the cloud.
Now, with CloudDirect, DraftKings now experiences more consistent network performance, greater security, and reduced bandwidth costs.
