Gotta catch ’em all: A Pokemon Go story and a skill badge
Google Cloud got the ultimate test when its customer Niantic released 200 Pokémon, and the entire world had to catch ’em all. Engineers at Google and Niantic prepared for traffic five times beyond expectations at launch. Instead, they dealt with traffic 50 times beyond expectations!
Pokémon GO uses over a dozen services across Google Cloud. And it is the largest Kubernetes deployment ever on Google Container Engine.
Niantic chose Google Container Engine for its ability to orchestrate its container cluster at global scale to service millions of players as the game continuously adapted. See for yourself how Google tools like Kubernetes, Google Container Engine, and Datastore can support products like Pokemon Go at scale and with continuous improvements in the Deploy to Kubernetes in Google Cloud Quest !
