Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) is a managed environment for deploying, managing, and scaling containerized applications using the Google Cloud Platform. GKE can be used to power a number of critical player-impacting game features. This talk will discuss how Unity uses GKE to power its multiplayer matchmaking services, and how GKE can be used to scale these workloads to meet the demands of millions of players.


Developers will leave with a greater knowledge about Kubernetes, and in particular, GKE, and how they can apply it to game services that require scale.

Intended Audience

Developers working with containers and Kubernetes for game services. Server-side developers, dev ops, live ops.
