Roblox was trying to grow into a global entity and needed to deliver secure, consistent experiences for developers and players alike, regardless of where they were in the world. Poor user experiences, such as slow load times or disconnects, could mean lost revenue for the business. Roblox came to Akamai for help ensuring they were successful in enabling high performing online multiplayer game and game creation experiences.
Roblox’s mission is to bring the world together through play. Every month, more than 90 million people around the world have fun with friends as they explore millions of immersive digital experiences. All of these experiences are built by the Roblox community, made up of over 2 million creators. We believe in building a safe, civil, and diverse community—one that inspires and fosters creativity and positive relationships between people around the world.
