Hadean Connect is a networking solution that connects vast numbers of disparate clients across a distributed cloud and edge network. As more connections join the network, new nodes are automatically created, scaling to enable real-time data streaming and processing, regardless of computational intensity.
When used in combination with Hadean Simulate, Hadean Connect ensures low-latency, globally distributed game instances are made available to hundreds of thousands of connected players to monitor, view and interact with in real-time. Hadean Connect also enables client authentication and other protections against hacking attempts such as failing to accept updates or sending too much event data back to the simulation.
Being comprised of multiple locally-clustered nodes, Hadean Connect enables bidirectional data flow between clients from a single rendezvous point, ensuring that the most important information is processed between servers and players as soon as possible. This dramatically reduces the “last mile” performance hit typically experienced by geographically-dispersed clients connecting to a given server, not only drastically improving ping for cross-regional multiplayer sessions but also, crucially, enabling real-time streaming of updates, gameplay scenarios and other new content from developers straight into an active game world.
