AWS Announced The GA Of GameLift Feature Update

This update enables you to add low-cost, low-latency GameLift servers to your existing on-premises or cloud-based server capacities.

Recently, AWS announced the General Availability of Amazon GameLift feature update. This update enables you to add low-cost, low-latency GameLift servers to your existing on-premises or cloud-based server capacities.
 
Amazon GameLift is an AWS managed service for deploying, operating, and scaling dedicated servers for multiplayer games.

With this update, developers can launch low-cost GameLift servers into their AWS accounts and register the servers with their existing game server management systems to incrementally migrate live games, burst in-game events, or deploy containerized games onto AWS.
 
The update was released in preview in April, which enables developers to launch low-cost GameLift servers into their AWS accounts and register the servers with their existing game server management systems to incrementally migrate live games, burst in-game events, or deploy containerized games onto AWS.
 
AWS said that developers will continue to save around 70 percent compared to existing on-premises deployments, with the same reliability and global scale of an AWS service. And, configurations that you set during preview will continue to work in GA.
 
With this General Availability, the updated GameLift FleetIQ algorithm continues to provide developers with Spot Instances viable for game session hosting, but launches these instances into the developer’s account. Now developers can use their existing tools and software to manage GameLift FleetIQ instances as new capacity alongside their existing on-premises or cloud capacities. This will make it easy to incrementally migrate and burst to the cloud.
 
AWS also announced the launch of "Using Amazon GameLift FleetIQ for Game Servers", a free course from AWS Training and Certification, which will teach you how to use GameLift FleetIQ via hands-on explorations of demos and use cases.
