IT Link for Work has developed and integrated a cloud architecture to ensure the horizontal scalability of a multimodal urban traffic simulation game.
This “serious game” proposes a mobility simulation to the public, with the aim of studying its behavior and thus providing a decision-making aid for urban planning. In order to open up this simulation to a wider audience and thus obtain a sufficiently representative sample of behaviors, IT Link supported its client in implementing a flexible architecture providing sufficient computing power to increase the scalability of the solution.
Based on a technical environment using Google Cloud Platform, Google Kubernetes, Node.js, Express.js, Grunt, Brunch, docker and Angular.js, the cloud architecture deployed can be scaled up from 200 simultaneous users to more than 1,000 without impacting the user experience.
