How Epic Games develops Fortnite faster with a build farm on AWS

Epic Games is a leading interactive entertainment company and provider of real-time 3D creation technology. Epic is also the creator of Fortnite—one of the world’s most popular games, with over 350 million accounts. In this session, learn how with the help of AWS, Fortnite entertains players around the world, years after its initial release in 2017. By migrating its internal build farm from on premises to AWS services, including Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Epic drastically improved development iteration times and its rapid release cycle to continually deliver fresh content to players.


So we needed to deliver value quickly. We needed to be able to deliver a scalable, maintainable, highly available solution, and it needed to be performant. It needed to be more performant than what we had on prem. And so we dove into AWS."
