The challenge In 2014, Kerad Games chose Claranet – as an AWS Advanced Partner – to design a cloud solution capable of growing at the same rate as Golden Manager. To succeed, an online game like Golden Manager requires: 1. Capacity to absorb an exponential increase in users 2. Real-time analysis of enormous data sets 3. Uninterrupted availability and continuity of gameplay 4. Constant agile development of new functionality 5. Global reach to serve users from all over the world Kerad Games needed a technology partner with the experience and knowledge necessary to understand the demands of the application, and that would be capable of providing solutions at the same rate at which the game and the community are growing. The project consisted of complementing Kerad Games' existing on-premises infrastructure for Golden Manager with scalable solutions built in AWS's cloud, to allow them to concentrate on development and innovation in the game itself. The ultimate objective would be a complete migration of the whole platform to the AWS cloud, orchestrating all the solutions in such a way as to guarantee maximum performance for the game at all times. Golden Manager Golden Manager is a company that specialises in the design, development and commercialisation of social games for the whole family that are accessible from any device. In 2013, Kerad Games launched Golden Manager, a multi-platform game that, in the space of less than two years, has garnered over 4.5 million users across the world. Kerad Games was born from an idea by Gerard Piqué, a footballer at FC Barcelona, which is based on turning players into the managers of their own football club, controlling everything from signings and training, to the games and the ticket prices. It follows a free-to-play model and is designed to function across all devices and on the majority of internet browsers. It's also available as an app on Apple's App Store.
