Where should the game be hosted?

One of the remaining issues is where to host the game. The installer is around 250MB in size, and with around 2,000 new students potentially downloading it, that is a potential half a terabyte of traffic!

That's not to mention other use cases, such as:
  • A user having an interrupted download, so they may need to start downloading again
  • Users from other institutions
  • Users installing across multiple devices
The potential increase in traffic has been raised with our Information Services department, and they will advise as to whether the current infrastructure should be able to cope, or whether the game will need to be externally hosted.
