pwnwin is using a variety of Microsoft Azure services to allow gamers to compete on its eSports online platform. pwnwin utilizes Azure Cloud Services for highly available, high performance applications, Azure's SQL database and Azure Content Delivery Network for high-bandwidth content delivery. All services scale and adapt dynamically, depending on the load.
Players from around the world can compete in daily contests, challenges, tournaments and quests for instant cash and instant gratification. The platform allows players to register and start looking for opponents immediately by paying a fee to compete for cash or playing for free for a chance to win prizes.
“Microsoft Azure has allowed us to quickly scale our platform and services along with increasing and decreasing traffic. This is especially helpful after promotion activities, when thousands of users access our platform within a very short time,” said Dominik Mayrhofer, CTO of pwnwin.
