New platform for massively multiplayer gaming

Author: JT Smith

From BusinessWire: In a bid to establish a cost-effective standard for massively multiplayer server solutions for the online gaming industry, two former
senior entertainment industry executives have formed a new company and enlisted a pair of industry leaders to help realize that vision.
Paul Villadolid, a former senior vice president at Walt Disney Television, and Larry Hess, a former software engineer at special
effects pioneer Digital Domain, have joined together to form Rebel Arts, a technology and software developer with a proprietary
server platform designed to handle simultaneous, complex interactions on a massive scale. Rebel Arts' Versatile Accelerated Server
Technology (VAST) System will first be deployed in the online game industry.

Both AMD and Linux NetworX are also providing the resources necessary to deploy the VAST System in the online game industry.
