No CCU or DAU limits.
Every SmartFoxServer 2X instance runs with no CCU or DAU limits. We offer a wide range of server tiers with different quotas of CPU, RAM and network bandwidth. Based on your game type and requirements we will guide you to choose the most appropriate hardware type.
Exclusively in Overcast: add horizontal scalability to your games and apps with new tools to manage a SmartFoxServer cluster in the cloud. It provides customizable Load Balancing and Orchestration, extended client and server API and lots more.
All the servers launched in the same region share the same private sub-network: this means that multiple SFS2X instances can communicate with each other and the database(s) at ultra-low latency (e.g. <1ms).
All servers are launched with a predefined set of security measures like firewall, administration access control, etc.
You can also fine tune extra security settings in both SFS2X and MySQL via their respective admin tools.
Dedicated MySQL instances.
With Overcast you can launch any number of database servers and easily integrate them with SmartFoxServer 2X. You can also manage, customize and monitor your server via PHPMyAdmin through a secure connection.
Snapshots for backups and cloning.
Snapshots are a useful tool to store the entire hard drive of a cloud server and re-use it as a backup or template to spawn new instances.
World wide availability.
In Overcast, servers can be launched in your geographical region of choice to minimize the client-server communication latency to grant the best gaming experience to your users. Is the region you need missing? Contact us to request its activation.
Based on Amazon's AWS infrastructure.
