Cloud gaming , sometimes called gaming on demand or gaming-as-a-service , is a type of online gaming that runs video games on remote servers and streams them directly to a user's device, or more colloquially, playing a game remotely from a cloud. It contrasts with traditional means of gaming, wherein a game runs locally on a user's video game console, personal computer, or mobile device. Cloud gaming platforms operate in a similar manner to remote desktops and video on demand services;  games are stored and executed remotely on a provider's dedicated hardware, and streamed as video to a player's device via client software. The client software handles the player's inputs, which are sent back to the server and executed in-game. This approach provides several disadvantages, notably forcing the user to consistently maintain a high-speed internet connection to an external organization. This built-in barrier to entry not only locks out users who wish to play video games in areas without this internet connection, but also precludes the player from owning their personal copy of the software, and permanently locks the user into a rental agreement, tying the purchase of the game to the solvency of the streaming provider if the company goes out of business, the game ceases to exist.

This solution provides an overview of common components and design patterns used to host game infrastructure on cloud platforms. Video games have evolved over the last several decades into a thriving entertainment business. With the broadband Internet becoming widespread, one of the key factors in the growth of games has been online play. Online play comes in several forms, such as session-based multiplayer matches, massively multiplayer virtual worlds, and intertwined single-player experiences. In the past, games using a client-server model required the purchase and maintenance of dedicated on-premises or co-located servers to run the online infrastructure, something only large studios and publishers could afford. In addition, extensive projections and capacity planning were required to meet customer demand without overspending on fixed hardware.
