Gaming Solutions built on the Amazon Cloud

The time is now for Online Gaming

Not so long ago we spoke about the The Future of Cloud Services for Online Gaming and pointed out some of the fear uncertainty and doubt (“FUD”) surrounding online gaming software  providers and gaming operators deploying gaming solutions in the Amazon Web Services cloud.  Much of the concern came from ambiguous text surrounding illegal content and questionable activities.  Shown below as an excerpt from the previous version of the Amazon Acceptable Use Policy circa February this year.

“…

No Illegal, Harmful, or Offensive Use or Content

You may not use, or encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to use, the Services or AWS Site for any illegal, harmful or offensive use, or to transmit, store, display, distribute or otherwise make available content that is illegal, harmful, or offensive. Prohibited activities or content include:

  • Illegal Activities. Any illegal activities, including advertising, transmitting, or otherwise making available gambling sites or services or disseminating, promoting or facilitating child pornography.


…”

Today it is a very different matter due to the update on the 16th September 2016, note the omission of any statements with regards to gaming.

“…

You may not use, or encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to use, the Services or AWS Site for any illegal, harmful, fraudulent, infringing or offensive use, or to transmit, store, display, distribute or otherwise make available content that is illegal, harmful, fraudulent, infringing or offensive. Prohibited activities or content include:

  • Illegal, Harmful or Fraudulent Activities. Any activities that are illegal, that violate the rights of others, or that may be harmful to others, our operations or reputation, including disseminating, promoting or facilitating child pornography, offering or disseminating fraudulent goods, services, schemes, or promotions, make-money-fast schemes, ponzi and pyramid schemes, phishing, or pharming.
  • Infringing Content. Content that infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property or proprietary rights of others.
  • Offensive Content. Content that is defamatory, obscene, abusive, invasive of privacy, or otherwise objectionable, including content that constitutes child pornography, relates to bestiality, or depicts non-consensual sex acts.
  • Harmful Content. Content or other computer technology that may damage, interfere with, surreptitiously intercept, or expropriate any system, program, or data, including viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, or cancelbots.

…”

As far as we can tell, the FUD is now a thing of the past.  Embrace the future and the powerful elasticity of the cloud.

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do think that you need to write more about this topic,
    it may not be a taboo matter but generally people don’t speak about these
    subjects. To the next! Best wishes!!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But imagine if you added some
    great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could certainly be
    one of the most beneficial in its field. Awesome blog!

    Hello there! Quick question that’s completely off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My
    website looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a
    theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations,
    please share. Appreciate it!
