Hosting and Operating Online Games
Game-Hosting Services – Purposely built for the games industry
The question of whether cloud is an advantageous way for game companies to optimize costs and become more agile is no longer up for debate. Yet leveraging the cloud and the plenitude of available services to the greatest effect, and maximizing return on investment, is more complicated than merely making the decision to opt into cloud. The cloud takes on many forms and navigating it requires deep knowledge of its possibilities and limitations as well as a clear image of your own company’s or projects requirements, possibilities and limitations.
This is especially true for online games – being a work of art each game is unique and as online games capabilities grow and become more complex, the demands for knowledge and innovative solutions in cloud services and technical operations increases.
It can be quite overwhelming to sort through and keep up to date with all available information and competence on these topics.
Having a correct cloud strategy and technical operations & cloud services are crucial to an online game success but it’s quite demanding doing this on your own and ensuring the strategic competence required exists in-house. It can also be hard to find a service provider that delivers a holistic cloud & technical operations strategy from development to production and understand how online games work.

We are a knowledge first company so Clients often come to us with specific technical challenges they want help to solve. The scope of technical challenges are vast and varied though the common denominators are similar. They are aware of that their internal knowledge is perhaps not enough and has decided to let an external company design, deploy and operate their infrastructure/cloud resources, or they want to address a specific issue and get a second set of eyes on it. Another is that they are curious about what can be done on cloud/infrastructure today and how these new innovations possibly can help them. As we all know, tech is moving at light speed in all areas and it is hard for any company to keep up.
Based on this we often work very project based.
