Amazon GameLift is a fully managed service for deploying, operating, and scaling session-based multi-player game servers in the cloud.
Amazon GameLift replaces the work required to host your own game servers, including:
- Buying and setting up hardware.
- Managing ongoing activity, security, storage, and performance tracking.
Auto-scaling capabilities reduces payment on resources that are needed, while ensuring that games are available for new players to join with minimal waiting.
Uploaded game servers are hosted on Amazon GameLift virtual computing resources, called instances. Hosting resources are set up by:
- Creating a fleet of instances.
- Deploying the instances to run the game server (either a custom game server or configured realtime servers)
You can design a fleet to fit your game’s needs.
NoteUse the OpsRamp AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.
