Photon Cloud - The Power Behind

All applications you develop with our suite of Photon products will run in our Photon Cloud. Here we take care of service hosting, operations and scaling. You can fully concentrate on building your game or app!


Photon Enterprise Cloud - Dedicated Servers & Custom Code Plug-ins

In a nutshell the Photon Enterprise Cloud is like our well established public Photon Cloud and adds the following features: Runs on dedicated servers, provides guaranteed service levels (SLAs) and high priority support. Another big plus: You can run your own authoritative server logic via Plug-ins.
Typical Photon Enterprise Cloud scenarios are apps with 10,000 concurrent users or more, bigger game projects that need authoritative server logic or companies whose compliance policies restrict them to dedicated resources.

Scalable, Reliable & Always Connects

All Photon Cloud products are based on a client to server architecture, the most stable solution for multiplayer games! In peer-to-peer architectures clients often cannot connect due to NAT punch-through issues. This problem is even worse in mobile networks. With the Photon Cloud your games will always connect.
Our operations team monitors servers 24/7 and can scale up required resources at any time. Whether your game needs capacity for hundreds or for hundreds of thousands of concurrent users: we scale it to your demands.


Hosted Where Your Players Are

Low latency is an essential requirement in realtime multiplayer games. For this reason Photon Cloud is hosted in all major world regions to provide your players with a minimum latency.
Games that depend on low latency, like FPS or RTS game types, connect the players to the nearest region. Games that are able to handle higher latency, like turnbased game types, can connect all players to the same region.
