Good Gaming Enters Closed Alpha Testing

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/14 -- Good Gaming Inc. (OTCQB: CMGO), an online destination for gamers who want to become professionals, is a wholly owned subsidiary of CMGO. The state-of-the-art Good Gaming platform will give amateur gamers access to professional training videos, walkthroughs, key mapping guides and other tools. The site is built on an open source platform designed to scale with the user base.

In a gaming world first, Good Gamers will have a unique opportunity to offer their services as a "mercenary" to other gamers looking for help or additional team members. Users will be able to post a job on the mercenary system and decide which applicants to give it to.

The platform also provides a social network for gamers and allows gamers to publish posts, follow each other and keep track of favorite content on the site. Additionally, Good Gaming will provide a way to create teams and participate in tournaments.

This week Good Gaming is excited to report it is transitioning from the pre-development stage into initial closed alpha release. Under the hood, the Good Gaming platform employs a cutting edge combination of AngularJS and Twitter's Bootstrap 3 for a highly mobile responsive interface on the consumer front end. While a Symphony PHP framework on top of a MySQL database handles the heavy lifting on the backend.

During alpha release Good Gaming will begin testing the infrastructure, database, user and social systems. In addition, with the assistance of a select group of alpha testers, Good Gaming will begin the optimization process of the site's user experience (UX).

As the anticipated September launch of the Good Gaming website draws near, the founding group is "teaming" with excitement. Caxy Interactive has worked diligently to insure our guidelines to build a functional place where gamers can congregate and find each other have been met. Now that we have begun to play with features we imagined in closed alpha, we are happy to report the platform is meeting our highest expectations. These past few weeks have been a surreal process as we watch our dream materialize before our eyes. We can't wait to share it with the world.

"Calligo is a cloud service provider with data privacy at the heart of what we do. We are a typical Infrastructure as a Service cloud provider but it's been designed around data privacy," explained Julian Box, CEO and co-founder of Calligo, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Michael Burley, a Senior Business Development Executive in IT Services at NetApp, described how NetApp designed a three-year program of work to migrate 25PB of a major telco's enterprise data to a new STaaS platform, and then secured a long-term contract to manage and operate the platform. This significant program blended the best of NetApp’s solutions and services capabilities to enable this telco’s successful adoption of private cloud storage and launching of virtual storage services to its enterprise market.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.

"So, that folks who attend the entire track can leave the conference with some of the skills necessary to get their work done when they get back to their offices.
