Record every user interaction and snapshot and easily manage heavy reads and writes.
Store metadata about users to make predictions about future behaviors and deliver suggested content.
Guarantee consistent transactions and ensure that users get back to the correct game state.
Collect large workloads of user-generated data and feel confident knowing it is stored in a secure environment.
The gaming industry is built on delivering a great customer experience, however, user-generated content can create unpredictable workloads. Gaming apps and services need a modern, resilient infrastructure to support spikes in usage while still guaranteeing consistent transactions
Keep adding nodes to a cluster to give it more power to support large increases in gameplay without impacting performance. Don’t worry about flash popularity since you can start small to save on costs and simply scale as needed.
Use a database that can handle the traffic needed to support millions of concurrent players in real-time. Heavy read and write workloads are no match for a consistent, distributed SQL database that can scale across multiple regions.
Modernize your infrastructure and build on a distributed foundation to reach users around the world. Deploy in a multi-cloud setting and partition data by location to scale to any region and maintain compliance.
Build advanced features by leveraging metadata about users to create custom experiences while still delivering low-latency access to your application. With guaranteed consistent transactions, ensure that users always get back to the correct game state.
Having a reliable go-to backend service like CockroachDB is a great way to prototype new systems and allows developers to try new things without having to worry about how they might scale if they needed to.
“From an operations perspective, we really like how it survives quietly without any human effort. We’ve never experienced this type of scale before. It has a lot of nodes compared to other products, so the hardware failure happens frequently, but it survives these failures very smoothly. If we built this game on Couchbase and a node would die, we would be screwed.”
Gaming applications require an cloud-native, distributed database that can effortlessly scale up and down based on demand. CockroachDB has unique capabilities that set it apart from other database solutions.
Eliminate need for complex database operations and scale whenever and wherever you want
Ensure uninterrupted, high- performance queries during failure of a server, rack, or region
Use the tools and the language you use today and guarantee your data is always correct
Provide customers with accurate, timely information during peak shopping times
