Use Cases
Scaling for Customer Demand

Scaling for customer demand

A bank start-up…

…developed a new online service for its customers. Users could log in to manage their bank accounts, make credit card payments, and send money directly to friends and family members.

The service was a hit, and the bank found itself with an increase in its workloads, all of which used sensitive banking and personal customer information.

Scaling for customer demand

Banking on private cloud

The bank deployed its online service workloads on a CenturyLink Private Cloud.

By virtualizing its on-premises resources, the bank was able to scale to meet the fluctuating demand of its online service. More importantly, sensitive customer data never touched a public cloud environment.

Scaling for Customer Demand

Scaling for customer demand

With CenturyLink Private Cloud, the bank:

  • Scaled to meet increased workload demand without compromising data security
  • Kept sensitive data on its own physical hardware, thus staying compliant with industry regulations
  • Saved costs by virtualizing and scaling its own resources instead of paying for the usage of public cloud resources
Lowering Latency

Lowering latency

A small mobile game developer…

…released a hit multiplayer fantasy nostalgia game. Players could trade, talk, and battle with each other across a vast 2D, 8-bit world.

The game’s only minor criticism was its bouts with high-latency times during peak playing periods.

The developer needed to fix the issue before the game’s first major story add-on, a release they anticipated to send network traffic through the roof.
