Case study: “Exit Games empowers multiplayer online gaming

Exit Games runs its Photon multiplayer game development cloud on IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers, keeping more than 500 million gamers playing every month and empowering some 490,000 developers to work on the next big thing.


According to Christoff Wegmann, Founder and CTO, Exit Games:

“We were impressed that we could provision new servers very quickly with IBM Cloud, and we could have new resources up and running in under four hours, as opposed to the up to ten days it could take with other bare metal providers”

“We found that we could not only achieve 40% better performance, but also at multiple times less than we would have had to pay for any of the popular cloud platforms.”

“Quality of service is very important for us. With IBM Cloud, there’s always someone at the end of the phone if we need them, and the team does all they can to help us get our developers what they need, when they need it.”

“We’re able to tell our customers that their games are hosted on an industry-leading cloud platform with great performance, connectivity and scalability.”
