Gaming Database

ClustrixDB provides the scale, speed, and uptime needed by today's gaming database.

Gaming is where you find the high-energy, highly demanding customer. Their games must be running fast, smooth, and glitch-free… else they unleash a typhoon on social media. Your gaming database must be robust, well-provisioned, and ready to handle surges of demand. And whereas you can easily provision new application servers to handle demand, in the end those app servers need to connect to the database which ensures all the players are "playing by the rules."

Your games will live or die by the speed and robustness of your underlying database.


Gaming is all about surges. Whether it’s a new release, a new update, new content pack, or just the difference between weekday and weekend, usage patterns on a gaming database can spike greatly. ClustrixDB adds additional read and write scale with each additional server. Provision only the servers you need, when you need them, and save during the times you don’t!

High Speed

ClustrixDB is designed to handle hundreds of thousands of database transactions a second. This is critical when you have thousands of gamers all fighting, raiding, competing, and otherwise all going for a limited goal, weapon, or target. Gaming database performance is critical; you don’t want your users to complain about lag.

High Connection

ClustrixDB excels at multiple simultaneous transactions, exactly what a gaming site needs when multiple players are all competing on the same server. The last thing you need is for gamers to be "unable to connect to server," or worse – not be able to see their results on the leaderboard.

Drop-In MySQL Compatibility

Chances are your games run on MySQL. Avoid the need to replatform to an expensively licensed gaming database, and get the performance you need using your same MySQL application (workload), on a much faster database than MySQL.


Flex Up and Flex Down for Seasonal Demand

As your business continues to grow, downtime becomes increasingly disruptive and expensive. Moreover, as you approach the capacity limits of the largest server, you must consider workarounds to offload processing from the overburdened MySQL server. Managing these workarounds is not simple and can lead to additional costs in both people and resources. It can also lead to errors and downtime.

A Better Way to Handle Seasonal Spikes

There is now a better way to prepare for the holiday spikes in traffic and sales. ClustrixDB allows you to temporarily add the additional transaction database capacity needed to handle the spike in holiday traffic, catalog updates, and traffic before the holidays begin and to remove it after the holidays are over, saving you money. With ClustrixDB, adding and removing capacity is fast and easy—and it can be done without any site hiccups.

Database Scale Without Limits on AWS

The move to cloud computing is changing the face of the computer industry, and at the heart of this change is elastic computing. Modern applications now have diverse and demanding requirements that leverage the cloud to achieve scale. As demand grows, applications add new web servers and storage nodes to add capacity, but scaling your database hasn’t been as straightforward.

A New Approach to Scale-Out RDBMS

ClustrixDB is a scale-out SQL database that is designed to scale horizontally—by adding cores and servers. The shared-nothing architecture provides an entirely new approach to query resolution by moving the query to the data—not the data to the query. Learn how this revolutionary technology makes it possible to scale a single database across nodes, and still support massive concurrency while delivering high performance, full relational functionality, transactional consistency (ACID), and seamless deployment.
