San Francisco, California, November 15, 2016

Aviatrix Systems, an Enterprise Cloud-defined Networking, today announced that GREE International Entertainment, Inc., a leading free-to-play mobile social gaming company, is using Aviatrix cloud networking software with Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) to accelerate game development and time to market.

“AWS services along with Aviatrix point and click networking radically simplified the process of new game development and launch through VPCs in different global regions,” said David Pippenger, director of DevOps, GREE International Entertainment. “The secure user access solution is a paradigm shift that enabled us to eliminate jump hosts and improve security and accountability.”

As a global leader in free-to-play, GREE unleashes the power of gaming by taking it mobile and making it social. The company is a thought leader in digital transformation and leverages AWS to build a secure, flexible and scalable cloud-based solution for developing and launching new games more rapidly.

Using Aviatrix Enterprise Cloud-defined Networking software, GREE significantly simplified migration of its development environment to Amazon VPC. Additional benefits of the Avaitrix solution on AWS include:

  • Reduced the time to integrate and launch new games globally by over 95 percent;
  • Greatly simplified migration from Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) to VPCs;
  • Improved security and accountability provided by Aviatrix gateways’ dedicated encrypted connections for every developer to access AWS Cloud resources, eliminating the need for a jump host;
  • Easy evaluation, consumption and update of software through AWS Marketplace; and
  • Centralized management and visibility into the global cloud network.

“Aviatrix was founded with a disruptive vision – to make cloud networking as simple, dynamic and elastic as compute and storage,” said Rajan Panchanathan, Vice President of Marketing and Product Strategy, Aviatrix. “It’s great to see GREE International Entertainment maximize the simplicity, security and broad functionality of the Aviatrix solution to accelerate its game development and continue momentum.”

Enterprise Strategy Group Report
By Dan Conde and Leah Matuson

Modern applications are driven by vastly different needs than those of the past. Today’s applications require resources from multiple providers, and are not tied to a single location, such as an on-premises data center or a single, public cloud provider. These applications require rapid changes in design to meet workload or customer needs, and cannot be constrained by traditional networking architecture.
