Unstoppable mobile game success

When it comes to mobile game development, finding reliable and modern cloud tooling at the right price is crucial for business success. Yet, with competition high and margins tight, unpredictable cloud costs are a real challenge for gaming studios!

In order to tackle this we’ve introduced zero-cost egress!

We’ve waved goodbye to egress fees to ensure our customers can accurately forecast cloud spend and scale projects as needed without the headache of hefty egress fees.

Celebrate your games success without worrying about network traffic fees and the dreaded monthly invoice.

What does this look like in practice?

For many businesses, the draw of kick-start credits from industry giants can seem like offers too good to decline. We get it! However, when your game gains traction, companies quickly burn through these credits – often in a matter of weeks.

Here is where things get unpredictable!

Spot the difference

We’ve price checked against industry giant AWS for instances of standard traffic and under surge conditions.
