AWS Compute for Games


Today’s games have rapidly evolving compute needs—dedicated servers, matchmaking, leaderboards, and more. Why make inflexible on-premise investments when you can get secure, resizable capacity to run and operate games at scale?

Push the limits with AWS

Build your own or use managed services

Create a customized server infrastructure in the cloud while maintaining control over your environment or select a managed service that gives you access to the same availability and scale while saving you even more time.
