New Issue of Architecture Monthly: Games

Post Syndicated from Annik Stahl original https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/architecture/new-issue-of-architecture-monthly-games/

Architecture Monthyl Magazine - September 2019 (Games)This month’s Architecture Monthly magazine is all about games—not Scrabble, not Uno, not Twister, and certainly not hide-and-seek.

No, we’re talking the big business of online, multiplayer games. And did you know that approximately 90% of large, public game companies are running on the AWS cloud? Yep, I’m talking Epic (ever heard of Fortnite?), Ubisoft, Nintendo, and more. I had the opportunity to sit down with a senior tech leader for AWS Games, who talked about why companies are moving to the cloud from on-premise, and it’s about a whole lot more than just games for entertainment. We got into the big-money world of competitive eSports as well as the gamification of learning processes and economics.

Consider Twitch, often defined as Amazon’s live streaming platform for gamers. But Twitch is much more than a gaming platform. For example, AWS Live Video on Twitch offers live streaming about everything from how to develop serverless apps and robots to interactive quiz shows that help you prepare for AWS Certification exams. And of course, you can also learn about the technology that powers your favorite video games.

September’s Issue

For September’s issue, we’ve assembled architectural best practices about games from all over AWS, and we’ve made sure that a broad audience can appreciate it.
