BackgroundStarting next year, 5G (5th generation) network operation will commence, further increasing achievable speeds and connection counts. For games and many applications, stable and high speed server technology is required. In order to provide network and server technologies more easily our company has been promoting cloud computing for server solutions. We have developed "Strix Cloud" - a highly scalable solution for online game development.

About Strix CloudStrix Cloud is a cloud version of "STRIX ENGINE" - a server solution developed for real-time action MMO games. With Strix Cloud it is possible to create a real-time server with just one click. Server development is very easy, as only simple modifications are required. Some of its strengths include the ability to process large numbers of messages at high speed and simultaneously connect a lot of users, which makes it viable for online games with near real-time nature. The released Strix Cloud ver 1.0.0 contains Unity tools for easier client-side development. By using them the online game creation becomes very easy.

[Features of Strix Cloud] • Set up game servers using web interface Server programming is unnecessary, because the setup of the game server is completed with simple operations on the web interface. Even when increasing the number of servers, you can easily scale out using the same interface.

• Ability to handle a large number of simultaneous connections and high-speed processing of messages As a high-performance server solution, Strix Cloud servers can handle a large number of concurrent connections and process messages at high-speed, which makes it a good candidate for any kind of game genres - from social games to real-time action ones.

• Many built-in helper functions for online game development Strix SDKs contain many functions necessary for on-line game development, such as matching, replication (object synchronization), webhooks etc. In addition, Unity SDK plugin contains property synchronization and RPC, which makes handling the game-specific communication processing even easier.
