High-level overview

eSports competitions

Computer-based entertainment, ranging from videogames to simulations, have evolved over the past few decades into a booming business.

The global gaming market is estimated to grow from US$108.9Bn in 2017 to US$137.9Bn in 2018 (Source: Newzoo). The pervasive availability of broadband Internet has been a key facilitator of this growth, but the recent phenomenon catalyzing the upswing has undoubtedly been the enormous popularity of multiplayer competitions. Online competitions can now be found in multiple forms, including session-based multiplayer matches, multiplayer virtual coaching, and professional competitive experiences.

Earlier manifestations of games and simulations were based on client-server computer architectures that required dedicated, on-premise or co-located servers. These were both expensive and had limited scalability and could therefore only be afforded by large studios and publishers. Next to the skills required to operate such an infrastructure, the load-profile required complex capacity planning without risking overspending on the infrastructure. The availability of today's Cloud-based computing resources, offers game developers and publishers of any size the ability to supply resources on demand, helping to avoid costly up-front investment and the risk of having an overly expensive or an inadequate infrastructure.
