What’s the difference?
Without getting bogged down in the jargon and technicalities here (this is a webpage, not a white paper after all), when it comes to hosting your game you’ve got three main choices:
Managed Infrastructure is perhaps the most used currently, with games hosted on physical servers or ‘bare metal’. This approach offers a cost-effective yet performant solution because you can negotiate long-term agreements with vendors to suit your capacity requirements. With a vetted network of infrastructure, Multiplay reduces the risk and effort involved with using bare metal.
Cloud is often the preferred option when flexibility is essential. With the capacity and reach that cloud providers like Google Cloud Platform and AWS provide, you can scale at speed, which is ideal if you have unpredictable levels of users. All of this power and flexibility comes at a cost however, which is where Multiplay’s orchestration layer and expert team can help.
Hybrid Cloud is Multiplay’s blend of both Managed Infrastructure and Managed Cloud, offering the performance and cost-efficiency of bare metal, with the flexibility of the cloud. By utilizing bare metal for the bulk of your capacity and only bursting into cloud when needed, you save money and your gamers get a seamless experience. Hybrid Cloud is the most scalable, resilient solution available.
