Amazon GameLift is a fully managed service for deploying, operating, and scaling session-based multi-player game servers in the cloud.

Amazon GameLift replaces the work required to host your own game servers, including:

  • Buying and setting up hardware.
  • Managing ongoing activity, security, storage, and performance tracking.

Auto-scaling capabilities reduces payment on resources that are needed, while ensuring that games are available for new players to join with minimal waiting.

Use the AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.
