Sneaky Games is always looking to pioneer new technologies! A new case study released by Microsoft debuts a successful example. In addition some of our team appeared on a Microsoft Channel 9 interview!
Sneaky Games is an independent software vendor that develops role-playing games for social media platforms, such as Facebook, and mobile devices. The small company, which employs 22 people, used a hosted infrastructure at Rackspace to deliver its games to customers, but struggled with costly and time-consuming server maintenance, particularly when the company had to scale up its infrastructure to meet peaks in traffic. Sneaky Games turned to the Windows Azure platform, hosting its games on the cloud service in Microsoft data centers. As a result, the company achieved levels of scalability critical to its success in the social media space and can scale up or scale down its infrastructure in minutes. Sneaky Games avoided the need to hire more IT personnel to maintain its infrastructure and can instead dedicate its resources to developing compelling games and quickly offering them to players.
