Magisterion is an independent Russian company that has been in game development for more than five years. Their projects include The Hunting Grounds and Frozen Flame. The main direction of the company now is the development of games on Unreal Engine 4 for various platforms.
“We offer our customers only the highest quality games of different genres and know that the infrastructure on which service provision is based plays an important role”
At the end of 2017, Magisterion launched a closed alpha test of the game on Unreal Engine 4. Testing, which was carried out by people from all around the world, required a server on Linux with powerful processors.
At the time of launching the alpha test of the game, Magisterion was looking for a reliable cloud hosting for dedicated game servers.
“Initially, we were using service from Amazon, but due to the dollar exchange rate the necessary equipment turned out to be significantly more expensive. The advantage was obviously not on the American vendor’s side. Since then, we have been a client of G‑Core Labs and are no longer tied to the exchange rate”
After changing service provider Magisterion infrastructure expenses decreased by half.
The G‑Core Labs team has done everything necessary for the delivery and sustainability of Magisterion’s global content. Today, the game developer uses cloud servers in Luxembourg based on Intel Xeon E5 processors with an internet access speed of up to 200 Mbps.
