ZetaWorlds Technology Overview
ZetaWorlds operates various systems, this page aims to give a brief overview of them
ZetaSimZetaWorlds, like many other grids out there, runs on the OpenSimulator platform, but to accomodate our unique infrastructure we have had to make some adjustments. These include, but are not limited to, changing the way assets are pushed to users. Normally this is done via a central asset server that delivers upon request. This means that all requests must go through a central location, for everyone on the grid, no matter where they are from. This can lead to slow responses and timeouts. To combat this issue we provide our assets through a global CDN network, which runs multiple servers all around the world saving copies of frequently requested assets. This approach reduces response times and reduces the load on the asset server significantly.
ZetaSim also features various improvements to available functions within OpenSimulator as well as brand new functions and configuration abilities not previously exposed. This makes it more suited to provide whatever experience a user may look for.
