Tungsten Topology
Composite Active/Passive Tungsten Clustering topology – One Active Cluster and Multiple Passive Clusters


Catering to hundreds of millions of game players around the world reliably and fast

Serving a gaming application for a geographically-distributed audience is a pretty unique challenge.

It requires fast, local response times for read traffic, a limited number of updates, and a single consolidated view of the data across the world, which is very typical for gaming applications, and for all account/subscription management systems in general.


The solution we implemented for this customer is comprised of four (4) geo-distributed Composite Tungsten Clusters, with one active cluster in USA West accepting writes and updates and handling local read traffic, and three passive Tungsten clusters in USA East, EMEA, and APAC providing very fast local reads to access the player accounts.
