Summary
In this project, we built a scalable game infrastructure for Massively Multiplayer Mobile Games (MMOG)

Details
Our infrastructure, called Matrix, could automatically add servers to a game when the game load exceeded specified thresholds. It could also remove servers, automatically, when the game load fell below specified thresholds. This automatic load balancing allowed games to handle even massive hot spots, automatically, without crashing the game or causing too much discomfort to existing game players.
