Score Big with Social Gaming and Apps in the Cloud


Published on

RightScale Webinar: March 24, 2011 – In this webinar we demonstrate how RightScale can manage your game/app through the stages of concept, production, growth, maturity and niche. We discuss how AWS provides the underlying compute resources necessary to support the full lifecycle of your game/app. We demonstrate how Couchbase's Server key-value database provides high throughput and low latency, ensuring that your application — and users — are never kept waiting for data.

  • Amazon Web Services is a set of primitive building blocks to enable developers to build applications and, ultimately, businesses, on our battle-tested infrastructure. So what kinds of building blocks do developers need? First, you need compute resources. The Elastic Compute Cloud, or EC2, allows developers to rent virtual computers, running in our data centers, and pay for them by the hour. Provision as many as you need – 1, 10, 1000, for as long as you need them, and you pay only for what you use (starting at 10 cents/hour). Next, you probably need somewhere to durably store and retrieve data. The Simple Storage Service, is, well, a simple storage service that allows to store and retrieve objects in the cloud using simple put and get API calls.You might need to index and query for that data, or create other structured data that you want to query, which is what we built SimpleDB.
  • At RightScale, we believe that your adoption of cloud computing should start here – by selecting a cloud management platform to help you. The RightScale Cloud Management Platform provides a layer of abstraction between your apps and the cloud. It offers a fast on-ramp with proven, cloud-ready solutions. It improves productivity and agility by delivering management tools and automation. And it offers complete transparency and user administration to keep you in control at all times. If you need to migrate to a different cloud for any reason, RightScale ensures your applications are portable. The RightScale Platform operates with an ever-growing list of public cloud infrastructure providers including Amazon, Rackspace, GoGrid, Flexiscale, and public or private clouds built with Eucalyptus or vCloud Express.
