Final Fantasy XIV North American Data Center Relocation

Final Fantasy XIV North American Data Center Relocation

Posted time: Mar 30,2017

Back to PAX East 2017, Square Enix said it would relocate the North American data center for Final Fantasy XIV. The game director and producer Yoshino Naoki, participated in the official forum of the game, to see what is going to happen, the reason and what players are expecting in the next few months.

The current North American data center for Final Fantasy XIV is the company's first game servers outside of Japan, and it has grown beyond the current device. Problems such as  lack of space, inability to expand, and voltage overload issues lead to the extend of maintenance and server crashes, resulting in companies moving to new locations with modern facilities. This will make it easier to apply updates to make the server more efficient, increase the size and scope of the game area, allow for cross-world friend management and party matching, and increase the size of the inventory.

This move may lead to the Final Fantasy XIV players' changes for the ping times. The new data center will be in North America, in an area with advanced Internet infrastructure. After moving, people closer to this undisclosed location will see the falling ping times, while people further will see them rise. Yoshida pointed out that as long as less than 200 milliseconds, even if the move causes a slight increase, people should not experience any detrimental effects.

Finally, Yoshida closed by giving a window of when the Final Fantasy XIV North American data center relocation will begin. Although the official announcement will be closer to the actual date, but should occur in mid-May 2017. North American server users will experience 48 hours of downtime, while users in Europe and Japan will not enjoy service within 24 hours. Each active user affected by the move may receive an extra day added to their subscription.

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC, although the PlayStation 3 version of the support will be ended when the next expansion is released. Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will be released on June 20, 2017. Welcome to buy cheap FFXIV Gil on igxe.com.
