Nexon America, the MapleStory developer's U.S. arm, says Pando will be providing content delivery services for its game downloads.

Pando uses a cloud platform, and Nexon says the partnership will accelerate download speeds for its users and lower its own operations costs.

Pando says its Content Delivery Cloud optimizes data delivery from both CDN servers and peer nodes, and claims it's more scaleable than a stand-alone CDN delivery service, since capacity expands with demand to increase speed.

"This is especially important for online game distribution as new releases of popular games frequently result in a sudden surge in download demand that can degrade CDN performance and the end user experience," says Pando.


"With quicker completed downloads, it is now even easier for Nexon players to experience our free-to-play games and allows Nexon to expand our reach even further in the North American market," says Nexon vice president of game operations Soo Min Park.
