The next frontier in gaming may be in the cloud

Remote data storage enabled through cloud technology is creating an indelible print on the way entertainment is globally consumed. In previous generations, most media had to be procured in hard form from a merchant’s brick and mortar location.

In recent years though, services like internet media streaming giant Netflix have amassed a huge database with a wide selection of titles that can be viewed by a user immediately. In order to accommodate the high-user demand at peak viewing hours though, Netflix officials turned to a managed IT service that helped the company satisfy its growing population of viewers without any significant changes to its operational methods.

Following along with this trend, the video game industry has begun to embrace cloud computing to similarly offer hundreds of gaming options available for immediate end-user consumption.

Leading the way in cloud gaming adoption, Seattle, Washington-based company Big Fish Games is using cloud technology to afford instant gaming to interested users on both mobile and stationary devices.

“Much like Netflix changed the way we view movies today, allowing film entertainment to be accessed on over 800 devices, Big Fish’s cloud gaming service will transform the marketplace for premium casual entertainment by bringing our millions of mainstream customers that much closer to the thousands of wonderful games created by our in-house studios and game development partners,” said Big Fish Games CEO Jeremy Lewis.

Considering the gaming frontier being established in the cloud, video game companies may experience new obstacles to overcome as competitors will be able to offer their services instantly. Therefore, it would be wise for such companies to utilize the competitive advantage afforded through remote data storage and deploy the services of a national IT service that can tailor a cloud program to manage a company’s data with unprecedented efficiency.
