Accelerating Game Builds with Nasuni & AWS

March 29, 2022 | John Capello Accelerating Game Builds with Nasuni & AWS

With the global gaming market expected to grow to $257B by 2025, studios are locked in an increasingly competitive race. They need to deliver more innovative, complex, detail-rich experiences to gamers, whether that means launching new titles or pushing out new releases of existing franchises. They need to produce these games quickly, without sacrificing quality. As gaming files grow larger and more complex, it becomes more difficult and more expensive to store, share, and protect this data using traditional file infrastructure.

Modern game development needs modern cloud infrastructure. Enter Nasuni for Game Builds, our latest offering in the AWS Marketplace. Using Amazon S3 as the backend object store, Nasuni for Game Builds accelerates collaboration, increases gameplay quality, decreases development/testing time, and cuts costs up to 50%.

Nasuni has extensive experience in this space. We’ve partnered with some of the leading game studios in the world for years, and working closely with these studios has allowed us to optimize our file services platform game design studios. We know what these global teams of developers, artists and game testers need, and we’ve fine-tuned our platform to deliver the ideal file services suite for the gaming industry. Thanks to the scale of Amazon S3 and the strength of our cloud-native file services platform, our customers have cited up to:

  • 25% acceleration in time to market for new games
  • 10 hours of developer’s time recouped each week (because they’re not waiting around for files to sync)
  • 30X increase in number of builds available for testing each week (thanks to high-speed global file sync)
  • 50% reduction in costs by shrinking or eliminating on-premises file storage infrastructure

Nasuni for Game Builds also minimizes risk exposure. Intellectual property is securely protected with built-in, automatic backup, disaster recovery, and rapid ransomware recovery capabilities. So the technology isn’t just accelerating follow-the-sun collaboration between distributed and remote teams – it’s also protecting those critical digital assets.

This new offering is something we’ve been working on for a long time. It highlights some of the core advantages of our platform, and we’re all excited to see what more gaming studios will do now that they have Nasuni and AWS in their toolset.
