This solution provides an overview of common components and design patterns used to host game infrastructure on cloud platforms. Video games have evolved over the last several decades into a thriving entertainment business. With the broadband Internet becoming widespread, one of the key factors in the growth of games has been online play.

Cloud gaming , sometimes called gaming on demand or gaming-as-a-service , is a type of online gaming that runs video games on remote servers and streams them directly to a user's device, or more colloquially, playing a game remotely from a cloud. It contrasts with traditional means of gaming, wherein a game runs locally on a user's video game console, personal computer, or mobile device. Cloud gaming platforms operate in a similar manner to remote desktops and video on demand services;  games are stored and executed remotely on a provider's dedicated hardware, and streamed as video to a player's device via client software. The client software handles the player's inputs, which are sent back to the server and executed in-game. This approach provides several disadvantages, notably forcing the user to consistently maintain a high-speed internet connection to an external organization. This built-in barrier to entry not only locks out users who wish to play video games in areas without this internet connection, but also precludes the player from owning their personal copy of the software, and permanently locks the user into a rental agreement, tying the purchase of the game to the solvency of the streaming provider if the company goes out of business, the game ceases to exist. It is also inherently wasteful [ clarification needed ] , and has insurmountable lag built-in to the distribution model, forcing users to make connections to potentially geographically-distant servers for the sole purpose of sending command inputs and retrieving video and audio streams that are viewed once and then immediately discarded. Advocates of this system argue that this increased set of restrictions makes the game accessible without the need to download and install it locally, and on a wider range of devices including mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets , digital media players , or a proprietary thin client -like device  due to lower hardware requirements over running the game locally.
