GigaSpaces’ and Yazino’s Visionary Technology Take Social Gaming to the Next Level

GigaSpaces’ and Yazino’s Visionary Technology Take Social Gaming to the Next Level

GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform supports Yazino’s proprietary technology with high-throughput and high performance on a Cloud-Data Center Hybrid Infrastructure.

New York & London, December 7, 2010 GigaSpaces Technologies, a leading provider of a new generation of application platforms for Java and .Net environments, has provided Yazino, a massively multiplayer online casino, the application infrastructure used to build the first cloud-based, social casino platform. Yazino is using GigaSpaces’ eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) to scale on demand while reducing costs and speeding time to market.

“As a social gaming online casino, we knew from the beginning that scalability was critical to our success,” says Hussein Chahine, Yazino’s Founder and CEO. “With XAP, we have the flexibility to meet constantly changing business volumes, with linear, real-time dynamic scalability using a cloud-data center hybrid model.”

Yazino fuses social interaction and multiplayer functionality, building a bridge between traditional online gambling and social gaming sites. Yazino has already registered more than 500,000 players, with more than 10,000 new players joining daily.

XAP provides a unique enterprise-grade, end-to-end application scalability platform, which can handle extremely large volumes, be scaled out (or in) in real-time, and is governed by preset business SLAs, and which is ultra-fast due to the whole platform running in memory. A strategic solution enhancing IT efficiency and agility, it guarantees performance under peak demand while improving hardware utilization by up to 500%. It allows developers to build, deploy, and operate their infrastructures in any environment without a single code change.

“Yazino benefits from our long experience with cloud development,” says Adi Paz, GigaSpaces Executive Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “With XAP as the underlying infrastructure, our clients like Yazino can focus on the business logic and speed time to market without concern for where the application will actually run.”

By using XAP, Yazino now has a massively multiplayer/multi-game online casino platform optimized for extremely high throughput, with hundreds of thousands of concurrent, interactive players, while giving each player excellent response time.

“GigaSpaces technology helped us build a hybrid infrastructure, where we can leverage the best of the cloud’s economies of scale while ensuring our data center can manage all of the regulatory-related processing,” continued Hussein. “This provides Yazino a valuable competitive edge as we use more costly hosting only for what is required by regulation, while other services sit entirely on the cloud.”
