    Cygames, one of the largest mobile game developers in Japan, has been providing mobile MMOGs for millions of unique users. Their vision is to realize a massively shared world where millions of players interact, by processing over 3,000,000 simultaneous database transactions. Toward this, they developed an in-house database engine that is 20 times faster than conventional databases including RDB, NoSQL, and even cloud-based data stores, by exploiting multi-core CPUs and SSDs in an optimized way to MMOGs. This talk will explain how to implement a database engine tailored to your title, and explain how it will improve capacity and scalability of the game.


    Attendees will gain insight into the principles and considerations of why, when, and how they can develop an in-house database system that is efficiently optimized for MMOGs. Sample codes will be provided. This talk will inspire people to optimize their back-end database by leveraging data access pattern of their own projects.

    Intended Audience

    This talk is primarily aimed at engineers who are developing MMOGs. Although a minimal programming skill is required, anyone with an interest in MMOGs is welcomed. It will also satisfy technical directors and other decision makers who are evaluating the existing systems such as RDB, NoSQL, and other cloud-based storages.
