It seems that we are about to say goodbye to the high latency of online games, with Amazon finally opening the doors of its Amazon Web Services (AWS for short) servers in the Arab region
But wait. What does a company like Amazon have to do with my favorite games like PUBG and FIFA 19? In fact, Amazon is one of the most important online servers providers and its presence in the Arab region will be an excellent option for developers to host their games on for local players at the lowest possible Ping rate ever.
According to Sincronix CODE Twitter account, AWS opening in Bahrain will provide an environment suitable for Fortnite, PUBG, Overwatch, Apex Legends, Battlefield 5 and more, if developers decide to officially support it.
Previous tweet by Sincronix said that the initial testing of Amazon servers in the UAE gave very positive results, With Ping reaching only 10ms compared to European servers that usually exceed 70ms.
تحاليل: اليوم اختبرنا جودة سيرفرات Microsoft Azure لمنطقة الشرق الأوسط على كافة شبكات الانترنت الرئيسية في الخليج وتبين من خلال تجاربنا ان جودة الاتصال والبنق كانت ممتازه على معظم الشبكات عدا بعضهم وراح يتم تحسين باقي الشبكات مع مرور الأيام.
وهذي صورة تبين جودة السيرفرات حاليا. pic.twitter.com/uwcW9x8Xu7
