Linus Tech Tips checks out a custom Shadow server!

Hey #TeamShadow!

We’re excited to share a new video we worked with the Linus Tech Tips team to create, to answer the pressing question,

What’s actually inside a Shadow server?”

In the video, Linus opens up the Shadow server for a few tests of his own. We don’t want to spoil too much, so check out the video here:


Most importantly of all, we want to know what you think now that you’ve seen behind the curtain of what it takes to power your Shadow.

*cue Wizards of Oz reference*

Share your thoughts in the comments, especially if there was anything surprising to see! :)

Nice! I think I remember another video they did on Shadow.

You remember well! He stopped by back in 2018 for a tour of one of our data centers.

LTT’s why I’m here to give the service a shot. :D

I ended up getting Shadow because of Linus. He did a demo video awhile back which led me to try it out. I have tried many other services that can only do a portion of what Shadow can do and they don’t even come close to running as well as Shadow performs.

It’s one of those bills you don’t feel bad about paying. :sunglasses:

Thank you for finding it and linking it for me! I’ll be sure to watch that one again in a bit.

Awesome how Linus was looking for graphic artefacts which he was obviously familiar with that can happen using streaming from parsec / steam….but couldn't spot major issues with shadow.

 

Also, if I need to shread bananas I know where to go..

Great Video! I like how he broke down how one blade server can serve 3 clients on Boost and how the storage isn’t even on the server. Pretty cool!
