For boundless potential

The cloud is ideal for games that have volatile player numbers. Need more servers? No problem, you can spin up new capacity at speed. Also, with the global coverage and capacity that AWS and Google Cloud has, your game can be played worldwide, at a relatively low cost. So why doesn’t every studio use the cloud and manage it themselves?

The challenge lies in managing a large network of cloud instances. Whether it’s fine tuning performance, setting up monitoring, alerting and reporting, or simply trying to work out what the heck it is you’re paying for, the cloud isn’t as simple as it should be.

In order to avoid the expenses racking up, or optimization issues, you need a team experienced in cloud hosting for gaming.

This is where Multiplay comes in.

Cloud hosting by devoted gamers

Cloud providers have matured immeasurably in recent years and are now used by some of the biggest games on the market. Combined with Multiplay’s orchestration layer and support from our veteran game hosting specialists, you can rest assured your game is in capable hands.
