Cloud Platforms for Game Developers: Delivering Value at an Accelerated Pace While Reducing Risk

Authors: Larry Carvalho, Lewis Ward
Abstract

This IDC Insight looks at how Amazon Web Services (AWS) is abstracting its cloud platform services while addressing game developer needs. After the 2014 acquisition of Twitch, a social video platform and community where over 100 million gamers gather to watch and talk about video games, Amazon Web Services announced Amazon Lumberyard and Amazon GameLift to accelerate the pace of game development while reducing the risk in new game creation and deployment.
