Amazon offers a comprehensive set of development tools and services that make it faster and easier for developers to build, deploy, distribute, scale, analyze, and monetize successful games.
Build games not servers.
Amazon Web Services only charges you for the resources you use, with no up-front costs or long-term contracts, so you can spend your money on the things that differentiate your business.
Pick your platform.
Platforms are like player classes; so pick the one you’re best at. AWS is a language and operating system agnostic platform. We have SDKs for Java, PHP, Python, Ruby, Node.js, and .Net. If you’re a mobile developer we have SDKs for iOS and Android.
Don’t blow up; scale up.
Game traffic can vary throughout the day. With AWS you can automate adding more servers based on rules you set. Our Auto-Scaling service will automatically launch new instances, and our Elastic Load Balancing service will distribute incoming application traffic across your servers.
No Worries NoSQL.
Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service that helps your apps run faster with less work. DynamoDB requires zero administration, handles any level of read / write traffic, and responds with single-millisecond latency.
A Virtual Machines candy store.
Different parts of your game need different compute, memory, and networking configurations. With 17 configurations, choose the ones that work best for your game.
Never make your customers wait.
Amazon CloudFront provides a worldwide content distribution network (CDN) to ensure players get updates and content without delay.
Conquer the infrastructure world in minutes.
On the Internet, your customers can be anywhere in the world. With AWS you can have a datacenter to serve every geography with a few mouse clicks.
Having a vault won’t cost you your treasure.

The fastest growing gaming segment is on mobile devices. AWS enables you to get your game in the hands of your players fast.
