Simplified dedicated game server management

Game Servers fully manages Agones, an open source game server management project that runs on Kubernetes.

Game Servers takes the pain out of managing your global game server infrastructure, so you can focus on creating great games faster, without increasing complexity or compromising on performance.

Automatically scale your fleet for daily peaks, game events, or content drops, and easily manage multiple versions of your game server code.

Simplified management

Automate fleets of game servers across multiple Agones clusters, schedule scaling events, and monitor the health of your fleets using familiar tools like Terraform.

Flexibility and choice logo

Flexible and extensible

Benefit from the flexibility of open source and avoid vendor lock in. Opt out of management at any time to manually manage game server fleets. Run your game servers at blazing-fast clock speeds of up to 3.8 Ghz.

Player proximity logo

Global reach

Ensure your game servers are close to your players, with Google Cloud’s globally distributed regions, all connected by our high-quality private network. Game Servers will support hybrid and multicloud deployments later in 2020. 

Features

Autoscaling

Agones automatically scales Kubernetes, allowing you to meet unpredictable player demand.

Availability

Game Servers will give you a central control plane to manage all of your Agones installs, regardless of where you are running Kubernetes.

CPU options

Game Servers supports all CPU types available to Kubernetes, so you can select the right specs for your game.

Containerized

Put your application in a container and never worry about the server OS again. 

Open source

Game Servers is based on open source Agones, which extends open source Kubernetes and can be combined with other open source projects like Open Match.

Extensibility

Access the Kubernetes and Agones API, so you can tailor your game server workload to your unique gameplay experience.
