I am in the process of designing a mmo like game.
Right now i am exploring and designing diffrent aspects of the game (for phones tablets and pc), and i would like to be able to estimate how much it will cost assuming (10, 100,1000 … 10000000 online users…)
This game will need a consistent layer. in the event of this game actually pulling through, we will obviously more resources, than just using some cheap host (one of those 5$ plans). what is the equivalent for photon, for consistent data (where should i host my db)?
im having hard time to understand what kind of host i should look for. i would like to be able to scale my project (more space, simoultanous connecetions ,cpu etc), but the only solutions i was able to find were extremely expensive.
- db like mysql, sql or anything really is just fine.(flat file likes db also fine)
I am looking for a specific host name, just like photon for example solves your realtime problems(or smartfox).
- i can use either relational database or not
- amazon servers for examples, looks kinda expensive or i just dont understand how their price…
Thank you for your help!
