NHN Entertainment

The largest PC and mobile game development company in South Korea lays a foundation for market expansion with cloud services for game developers.

NHN Entertainment has its sights set on the $40 billion global mobile games market.* To capitalize on the growing opportunity and drive innovations and market expansion, it launched a new brand, TOAST, which stands for “Toward Art, Science, Technology.” The brand is supported by TOAST Cloud, an innovative cloud platform for game developers, not only at NHN Entertainment, but also around the world.

The company built a new, state-of-the-art data center to host its unique cloud platform while providing the highest levels of performance and security. To reduce cost and risk, the company chose the OpenStack open-source cloud computing platform with NetApp providing storage for OpenStack virtual machines.

Today, the NHN Entertainment OpenStack cloud is helping game developers and publishers embrace DevOps and remove operational barriers to provisioning development infrastructure. Freed from the burden of hardware maintenance and management, customers can enter the market faster and concentrate on developing more engaging games.
