Virtual servers and Battlefield 3 – Ninefold | Ninefold:

my progress [You are 6 of 6] in one of the six servers located in Australia continued to taunt me. I cursed EA. I was dumbfounded how they could not possibly spin up more servers during peak hours or at least add some extra capacity during the week of release in order to accommodate the large influx of players. It isn?t too hard to think that a company like that would have a virtualisation platform running their servers. Perhaps they should consider getting on the cloud?
