Online Game Technology Summit: Quasar, Brightest in the Galaxy: Expanding 'EVE Online's' Server Potential with gRPC


After 18 years of live service development, CCP Games is utilizing new technology to improve its legendary spaceship MMO, EVE Online. By implementing gRPC architecture called "Quasar," CCP is creating in-game systems that operate separately from EVE's main server. These systems free up space on the game's main server to perform additional operations, allowing players to better interact with each other and their surroundings.nnThis session explores why CCP is using gRPC as a solution to enhance EVE Online's massive player battles, how gRPC works within EVE's server architecture, and the opportunities this independent domain service structure provides for server stability and maintenance.
