In early November 2020 we have launched a new cloud service called Overcast which joins the family of SmartFoxServer products.
In this short series of articles we will be taking a look at how Overcast works, how to get started and and how it can help new or existing projects based on SmartFoxServer.
We are happy to announce the launch of Overcast, a dedicated cloud-based hosting service for SmartFoxServer 2X that provides a complete stack to build and run rich multiplayer games at any scale.
With Overcast developers can deploy any number of SFS2X instances in the cloud, world-wide, with a simple web-based interface. Each instance runs in its dedicated server with unlimited CCU and provides 100% of the SmartFoxServer 2X features.
For a full presentation of the service make sure to read this introduction to Overcast.
Recently we have announced a new partnership with cloud provider Jelastic to offer efficient and scalable cloud hosting for SmartFoxServer at very affordable prices.
In this article we’re going to explore the advantages of combining the two services, especially the ease of fine tuning the expenditure, which can be paramount for startups and independent game developers.
