Magnus Carlsen Chess Analysis, Programs Stored on Europe's Leading Internet Provider Basefarm Cloud

Posted by World Chess Championship 2013 News Blog Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Guess where World No. Magnus Carlsen will store all his chess computing data and chess programs? Do you know Carlsen's chess analysis and research cannot be stolen even if you rob him of his laptops?

The super chess talent from Norway has all his valuable chess data stored on the cloud via a cloud storage service provided by Basefarm. This is also because processor requirements for handling chess data and analysis are beyond the capacity of a regular computer. Getting help from the Basefar
cloud server not only saves times, adds speed to analysis, but also helps Carlsen keep his chess data safe and accessible from anywhere in the world. That includes India - for the World Chess Championship 2013 versus Viswanathan Anand.

Carlsen said, "To be absolutely sure that I anytime and anywhere can access chess programs provides a sense of security in preparation." says Carlsen.

Basefarm CEO Bjart Kvarme said, "This is very exciting for us. When we received the request from Magnus and his team, we were in no doubt that this was something we wanted to be part of."

"We are convinced that the quality of our cloud services can help Magnus achieve success in India and become the first western World Chess Champion since Bobby Fischer," said Kvarme.

Basefarm is a leading hosting provider for "mission critical business applications". They provide complex technology solutions, high-end cloud services, application management and colocation from six datacenters in Europe. With their +300 members of staff, they host more than 35,000 services reaching over 40 million end users in 23 countries. (Courtesy Basefarm official Oslo office Facebook page)
