Zumidian can handle the Operations aspects of your DevOps workflow. We have established a set of best practices tailored to the online gaming market.

DevOps : Incident Management

Our mission is to manage your mission critical online games, regardless of platform, technology or location, to ensure availability to the users. We ensure maximum uptime of your game(s), 24x7x365, anywhere in the world, hosted in-house or by any infrastructure provider.

Through our set of tools and best practices, we aim to restore normal service operation as quickly as possible and minimize impact on players and the company with resolution SLA’s as low as 15 minutes.

Network Operations

Fully staffed, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year

Your game's uptime is our #1 priority.

Our Network Operations Center provides around the clock coverage for your games and applications, regardless of where you are hosted or what type of game you have. With over 15 years of experience across Mobile, PC, MMO, Console and Social platforms (including most game engines and middleware), there is no lengthy on-boarding time or trying to explain what is important for gamers!

Our expert staff handles all of the operational work, freeing up your staff to focus on other tasks such as adding new features and reducing the need for your staff to be on-call.

You are experts in ensuring your game is amazing and caters to your player's needs. We're experts in ensuring your game remains accessible to your players all day, every day.

Benefits Of Using Zumidian

Improving your operations, saving money and time

Our 24x7x365 coverage removes the need for your staff to be on call thus more productivity during working hours. We handle the operational work, allowing you to focus on other value-added tasks such as new product features and improving user experience.

We provide you increased uptime which improves your revenue, credibility and retention.

Our Game Ops Team acts as part of your company without the burden of having to hire staff. Our team members have the technical expertise to provide all levels of support you might need.

There is no long-term investment due to hiring the needed manpower. If your game is not performing as expected, you can terminate our contract within a month while if you had hired staff, it would take more time and would be far costlier. We also provide 24x7x365 coverage of your games at a fraction of the cost of doing it internally.

DevOps: Incident Management

Onboarding

Workshops and architecture review

To create your unique runbook, we work with you to understand your environment(s), interactions and dependencies. These workshops and reviews can be done remotely or on-site to best suit your needs.

Runbook and trigger creation

From the architecture review, we create your runbook which includes the qualifying inputs for ZnAI, resolution steps and post fix verifications. This is then fed into our tools to build up your per archetype model which then starts monitoring and reacting to any issues.

Timeframe

Depending on the information available (and you and your teams time), on-boarding typically takes between 2 – 4 weeks before we have the understanding and data to take over 24x7 coverage
