Boosteroid Passed 3 Million Active Users – 18 Datacenters

Boosteroid Banner

Boosteroid is one of the cloud gaming services that we’ve seen grow significantly over the past year in terms of their reach, device support and user-interest. This can be seen in a number of our stats that cover the service’s following on various social media networks as well as app downloads etc.

But, we just got a great view of how the service works and how it is doing from an ASUS server marketing page. Why an ASUS marketing page? Because apparently Boosteroid is a large customer of ASUS. ASUS decided to highlight their relationship as a marketing story.

What Can We Learn?

Boosteroid Passed 3 million active users

The page has the following quote:

In 2022, the company’s customer base exceeded 3 million active users. Boosteroid expects to have 100 million active users by 2025

That is a big amount! GeForce Now and Xbox Cloud Gaming have touted numbers above 20 million user accounts. But, it is unclear exactly how many of those are active. Boosteroid’s projection of hitting 100 million users by 2025 seems… aspirational. But, it does have a clear road-map to be at least available on close to 100 million TVs as soon as 2023.

Boosteroid is Coming to TVs from Sharp, Philips, Skyworth

That brings us to the next thing we can learn. The article dropped information that Boosteroid has “partnered with Sharp, Philips, Skyworth and other top-tier TV and set-top box manufacturers with the goal of bringing PC games onto the big screen to over 70 million devices by mid-2023.” This will be in addition to the support for LG TVs and all Android TV sets where Boosteroid is already available and Samsung TVs where support is expected soon.

Boosteroid deploys custom ASUS servers in 18 Datacenters

From the article, it is clear that Boosteroid and ASUS have partnered fairly closely to develop a cloud gaming server product (blades and racks) that is used by Boosteroid in 18 Datacenters in Europe and North America.

For us, ASUS is not just a vendor, it’s a true technology partner committed to designing and delivering outstanding custom server solutions.

ASUS markets similar (less custom) server blades to others who’d like to purchase them as well (hence the marketing article). The Boosteroid specific blades have been updated multiple times – including most recently in 2022.

4K 60-240FPS Streaming is Coming

The article has the following statement:

Soon, Boosteroid and ASUS will launch a hardware solution capable of delivering 4K at 60-240 fps game streaming — a true game changer.

There isn’t a specific time-line but this definitely sounds promising.

Conclusions

The linked article provides a rare glimpse into the details of how a cloud gaming service operates. We are impressed by the active user count Boosteroid boasts and the future technology planned. Rather than operating in an existing public cloud, Boosteroid has chosen to deploy its own custom servers which appears to be making a really big positive difference for them.
