When using regions for session creation instead of specific locations Gameye automatically steers the match to the best possible location, provider and compute instance type (bare metal, cloud, edge).
For example, during the daytime, much of the load can be spread across bare metal servers while in the evenings or during special event cloud capacity can be ramped up quickly to deal with a peak increase in concurrent sessions.
In the case of a network disruption, the provider or datacenter at which the disruption is detected will be drained taken out of the equation in the selection process for placing new sessions. When a large amount of capacity is drained at once, extra servers are automatically brought online at other healthy providers.
When a location inside a region is out of capacity (bare metal or cloud) it will automatically be ignored in the selection process and sessions are created on the next best location.
You can use the following list of regions or locations when spawning new sessions.
* Multiple different providers (bare metal and cloud) can be used within the same location.
** This location needs to be activated on a per-account basis.
