Earthsim's Online World at Home with Qube Networks

Earthsim hosted by Qube Networks has been announced. Based on NASA data, Earthsim uses the latest graphical features of your PC to present mini-documentaries and an amazing real-time, 3D screensaver to guide you through the sights of the Solar System.

Qube is hosting Earthsim using an innovative, new service designed for internet-based companies with highly variable bandwidth demands.

By turning the traditional hosting model on its head, Qube Networks can easily track the rising bandwidth loads, and at defined trigger points, new servers are automatically powered up and available to handle the load. When the load drops off during 'quiet' times, then the servers are released from the load balancers and automatically powered down.
