What Powers Play at Zynga
Here at Code.Zynga, we talk a lot about the sheer scale and engineering power it takes to operate Zynga games as live services. This time, we thought it’d be fun to show you. See for yourself with our first ever techno-graphic below.
Did you know:
Zynga’s private (dubbed zCloud) and public cloud is known in the industry as one of world’s largest hybrid clouds.
Power generated from our infrastructure could’ve kept 166 international space stations in orbit during the second half of 2011.
We process enough data to store 10x the amount of movies in Netflix…in HD.
We even help players deliver 3x more gifts than Santa Claus. 36 billion were sent between players during holiday 2011 along. Don’t worry, we also did the math*.
Big data and big infrastructure is one thing, but it’s all made possible by the amazing talent at Zynga. Approximately 40 percent of our workforce is made up of engineers. To keep up with all the news at Zynga, head on over to our company blog.
*Assumes: 2.2B children worldwide, 6 gifts per child, Santa delivered to all children regardless of religion = 13.2B gifts. Also assumes Santa is real.
