Gaming Use Cases

MMO Game Servers

• Help game developers reduce game server operation and maintenance costs, such as multi-site disaster recovery of services, health checks, etc.
• Provide network dial test tools, allowing players to automatically access servers with lower latency.
• Cross-platform compatibility, regardless of PC, mobile or console games. Supports the deployment and operation of server frameworks in any language supported by Unreal, Unity engines, C#, C++, and gRPC.

Game Server Engine

Tencent Cloud Game Server Engine (GSE) provides dedicated game server hosting services for the deployment and scaling of stateful games. It supports service discovery, flexible server scaling, and optimal resource scheduling. GSE helps developers quickly build a stable and low-latency deployment environment for multiplayer games while reducing OPS costs.

Battle Game Architecture

Use Cases

• With centralized deployment, all game logic and game battle servers are deployed in the same physical zone and that services are provided to players from different regions simultaneously.
• This solution is suitable for casual games with relatively low network latency requirements such as card games and tower defense games.

Solutions

  • • TcaplusDB is a NoSQL database. It not only solves complex and ever-changing table structure problems, but also solves performance and OPS problems such as automatic capacity expansion, automatic backup, and the separation of hot and cold data in games.
  • • Global Application Acceleration Service (GAAP) solves the network problem of centralized deployment in the same region and supports nearest network access.
  • • Matching is a core feature of battle games. Tencent Cloud's game server hosting service solves the problem of resource utilization, takes over the game room assignment and termination logic, and reduces overall costs.
  • • In-game communication is a very important feature of battle games. Tencent Cloud's Game Multimedia Engine (GME) provides efficient solutions that can be accessed with an SDK.

Cloud Virtual Machine

Cloud Virtual Machine (CVM) brings you secure and flexible computing capabilities. You can obtain and enable CVM in the cloud in just minutes to meet your computing needs, and as your business needs change, you can scale up or down your computing resources with ease.

Game Multimedia Engine

Tencent Cloud Game Multimedia Engine (GME) provides a one-stop gaming voice solution. Featuring in-depth optimization for different gaming scenarios and types such as casual, social, MOBA, MMORPG and FPS.

Global Application Acceleration Platform

Leveraging its high-speed connections, forwarding clusters and intelligent routing technology for global nodes, Global Application Acceleration Platform (GAAP) enables users to access the origin server through a high-speed connection with the aid of the nearest node, helping eliminate the stutters and latency experienced by global users when accessing businesses.

TencentDB for TcaplusDB

TencentDB for TcaplusDB (TcaplusDB) is a distributed NoSQL data storage service designed for games. Combining high-speed memory and SSDs, TcaplusDB enables games on global and regional servers to scale and merge with no downtime, making it suitable for sustaining rapid business growth and long-tail OPS.

TencentDB for Redis

TencentDB for Redis is a caching and storage service compatible with the Redis protocol. It features a rich variety of data structure options to help you develop different types of business scenarios.

Cloud Load Balancer

Tencent Cloud Cloud Load Balancer (CLB) is a secure and fast traffic distribution service. Inbound traffic can be automatically distributed to multiple Cloud Virtual Machine (CVM) instances in the cloud via CLB, improving service capabilities systematically and eliminating single points of failure.

MMO Game Architecture

Use Cases

• Centralized deployment refers to a deployment solution in which zone logic servers and public services such as game accounts and top up are deployed in the same physical zone and services are provided to players from different regions.
• This solution is suitable for role-playing games with relatively low network delay requirements such as simulation games and sandbox games.

Solutions

  • • User platform data such as account numbers, top up and consumption, and game login records need to be stored in a centralized way. The high parallel scalability and high availability requirements of the database can be met through TencentDB for MySQL and TencentDB for TcaplusDB.
  • • The Redis Hybrid Storage Edition of Tendis can solve the problem of high concurrent access caused by a large number of operational activities and reduce the pressure of database read/write operations.
  • • MMO games in different operational stages have a lot of launching/merging activities, which requires the frequent operation of various resources. TIC resource orchestration meets this requirement and allows OPS personnel to manage infrastructure resources using the code management method.
  • • Under a centralized deployment solution, global players need to connect to battle servers in the same region. Global Application Acceleration Service (GAAP) solves the network problem of centralized deployment in the same region and supports nearest network access.
