Traditional multiplayer game development involves dozens if not hundreds of engineers over several years building custom made backends - often from scratch. Companies have recently moved to GCP or AWS but most games infrastructure runs on metal - often using multiple providers. Cost, latency & security are all cited as the primary deciding factors when architecting a modern online game; but a new vector is emerging - speed.
