Create a 20 Times Faster Database Engine Optimized to MMOGs


Cygames, one of the largest mobile game developers in Japan, has been providing mobile MMOGs for millions of unique users. Their vision is to realize a massively shared world where millions of players interact, by processing over 3,000,000 simultaneous database transactions. Toward this, they developed an in-house database engine that is 20 times faster than conventional databases including RDB, NoSQL, and even cloud-based data stores, by exploiting multi-core CPUs and SSDs in an optimized way to MMOGs. This talk will explain how to implement a database engine tailored to your title, and explain how it will improve capacity and scalability of the game.
