What are cloud game services and development? 

Cloud gaming services and development uses OEM cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and many more to build, release, maintain, and optimize sophisticated entertainment and learning offerings with the help of customized integrated solutions.

Advantages for Gametech through Cloud Adoption 

  • Reduced Cost: Cloud computing gaming services come with a pay-as-you-go model that helps Gametech servers to be billed based on usage. For example, if the storage or bandwidth has higher utilization during specific intervals, you only pay for the additional resources utilized during the mentioned period. This move drastically helps gaming businesses to reduce infrastructure costs related to investment in hardware infrastructure and idle resources. 
  • Faster Go-To-Market: Cloud comes with a myriad of readymade solutions dedicated to the software development life cycle, including DevOps, Media related services, IoT, RPA, Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, which can be utilized more efficiently and faster in development with the sustenance of the entertainment offering. 
  • Security: The information stored in the virtual environment is highly secure and compliant with various omnipresent data security regulation laws. The cloud is less prone and susceptible to hacking than traditional hardware systems.  Additionally, the availability of supplemental specialized security services makes your gaming environment extra-secure, which helps you maintain the reputation and trust amongst the customers. 
  • Piracy blocking: Since the physical file of games is not made available to the public, cloud-stored games seldom fall prey to piracy, which takes a massive toll on revenue generation. Additionally, it helps to avoid manipulations using cheat codes and maintain the authenticity of the offering. 
  • Platform independency and Device compatibility: With the advent of the cloud, most devices can access games anywhere. Even systems with minimal hardware configurations can access and perform gaming operations. 
  • Easy access to multiple games: It helps users use the gaming service platforms without downloading large files and with minimal service interruptions. 
  • Availability: Since most cloud OEMs have invested in CDNs and other availability zones around the globe, the availability of gaming services can be more guaranteed than other hosting solutions. Additional benefits will include less latency while fetching data, reduced network complications, and compliance with a specific country’s data protection and IT acts. 
  • Agility and Scalability: The cloud environment provides entertainment businesses with virtually infinitely expandable storage and bandwidth that the service will ever need. They can be auto-scaled based on real-time requirements to increase agility and scalability. 
  • Faster backend support: Support from cloud OEMs is top-notch, and game developers can easily troubleshoot the issues with the cloud and help their customers since all infrastructure is available at their fingertips.
