Gamesys and Hazelcast IMDG, Gaming Industry Case Study

Case Study

Gamesys, the award winning online gaming company, required a highly scalable poker platform that could be used for both real money and social gaming. The challenge was to build a cost effective platform that could manage failures without losing a player’s money, was highly available and elastic and could handle tens of thousands of concurrent players.

From its research, Gamesys found that NoSQL and RDBMs were not as fast as in-memory solutions, but it didn’t want to lose the resilience and consistency provided by a database. Learn how Gamesys reviewed the technology landscape and why it chose Hazelcast IMDG.
