The Silph Road is the premier grassroots network for Pokémon GO players around the world offering research, tools, and resources to the largest Pokémon GO community worldwide, with up to 400,000 visitors per day

Operating a volunteer-run, community network with up to 400,000 daily visitors is no easy task especially in the face of massive and unpredictable demand spikes, and with developers spread all over the world. With massive user demand and with volunteer developers located all over the world, The Silph Road’s operations must be cost-effective, flexible, and scalable.

This led the Pokémon GO network first to cloud, and then to containers and in both cases Canonical ’s technology was the answer.

Highlights

  • Containerisation with Canonical’s Distribution of Kubernetes helped reduce cloud build by 40%
  • Autoscaling makes coping with spikes in user demand easy and cost-effective
  • Juju enables The Silph Road to migrate between public clouds with less than 2 minutes downtime
