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.

The last few years have been a challenging time for most everyone – companies and individuals alike. As a company, we always reinforce that our most important asset is our employees, and our second most important asset is our customers. Take care of the former and they will take care of the latter. You get this right, and you can build a successful company. And so while the world was changing daily we stayed focused on our employees and our customers, and we are very proud of the results we have delivered as a company across a number of significant spectrums.

January 25, 2023 How Nasuni Really Works: What Does Nasuni Actually Do?

Often when you work at a technology company for long enough, you become so close to what you’re doing that you lose sight of whether other people actually understand what you’re building and how it works. This is often referred to as the ‘center of the universe’ problem. As a new member of the leadership team, I see the platform through a different lens, and in this post I’d like to roll back the conversation to the technical basics, or what makes Nasuni different and why.
