Pokémon Go: Brought to You by the Cloud
The benefits of cloud computing –flexibility, efficiency, scalability – are what have made it possible to rapidly deploy and scale as the game’s user demand has soared. Considering there have been some growing pains in terms of server availability and app performance, Pokémon Go also makes the case for why businesses should consider hosting their applications with a managed cloud provider that has the built in infrastructure and capacity to scale rapidly when usage spikes to maximize uptime and performance.
I don’t anticipate Pokémon Go mania will die down any time soon. In fact, I think we are just about to see a huge influx of augmented reality games and apps. I look forward to seeing what other cloud lessons can be learned as this game and others like it continues to conquer the world.
