Sheffield-based WANdisco has secured a contract win for its Amazon S3 Cloud solution – which is available in Amazon’s AWS marketplace – with Playtika.

Playtika selected WANdisco Fusion after finding it was the only solution that could transfer the large volumes of continuously changing data generated by Playtika, to the cloud without affecting the “gaming experience” of Playtika’s six million daily players across 190 countries.
