Being online for 14 years, Tibia is one of the most long-lived MMORPGs worldwide. This presentation will give a detailed view on the current technical infrastructure to make a persistent world with around 300,000 active players run 24/7/365: the database, the game servers, the login servers, the web servers and everything else. It will be about the hardware, the software, the reasons why it was built that way and the challenges Tibia has to face today. Finally, it will provide a glimpse on the infrastructure of CipSoft's next game which includes many of the lessons learnt from Tibia.
