How we have reduced infrastructure expenses for a well-known game developer
Magisterion is an independent Russian company which 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 for sure that the infrastructure on which service provision is based plays an important role”
To launch a new product servers with powerful processors were necessary…
At the end of 2017, Magisterion developers launched a closed alpha testing of the game on Unreal Engine 4. Testing, which is being carried out by people from all around the world, required a server on Linux with powerful processors.
…we found them, but they were expensive. We had to look for new ones
At the time of launching alpha testing 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 dollar exchange rate the necessary equipment turned out to be significantly more expensive. Advantage was obviously not on the American vendor’s side. Since then, we have been a client of G‑Core Labs and are no more tied to the exchange rate”
After changing service provider Magisterion infrastructure expenses decreased by half.
