ViewLift and Google Enable Multi-cloud

ViewLift, a leading provider of OTT and streaming technology solutions, recently announced a novel approach for its clients: the ability to use any major cloud provider or multiple clouds with the click of a button in ViewLift's back-end. The company provides content owners with a comprehensive end-to-end solution for distributing and monetizing their content across multiple device platforms, such as web, mobile, over-the-top, connected TV, smart TVs, and gaming consoles.

It will now integrate its technology stack via a new partnership with Google Cloud, offering enterprises a multi-cloud and cloud-agnostic deployment advantage. This deployment capability makes it one of the only platform providers in the OTT solutions industry to provide such agility and flexibility.

ViewLift, a longtime partner of Amazon Web Services (AWS), will now offer customers the technology stack of their choosing or the option to run both Google Cloud and AWS in parallel to ensure the highest platform uptimes. In addition, cloud-agnostic deployment provides access to new functionalities and features available on any major cloud, significantly improving the quality, availability, and resilience of ViewLift's solution.

Manik Bambha, President of ViewLift, said, "With the Google Cloud integration, we take a major step towards the next level in technology leadership; our customers can choose exactly what cloud services work best for them, letting them mix and match features and functionalities to arrive at an ideal bouquet of services."

PLAYSTUDIOS, Inc. the creator of the playAWARDS loyalty platform and an award-winning developer and publisher of free-to-play mobile and social games that offer real-world rewards to players, today announced the rollout of its industry-leading playAWARDS loyalty platform for Tetris®, one of the most popular video games of all time. For the first time in the iconic puzzle game’s nearly 40-year history, mobile players will be able to earn in-game loyalty points that can be redeemed for real-life rewards from a global collection of iconic leisure, hospitality, entertainment, and other brands. “This is an exciting evolution for Tetris and a groundbreaking advancement for casual mobile gaming as a whole,” said Andrew Pascal, founder and CEO of PLAYSTUDIOS. “Our players earn loyalty points for doing something they love and can use those points for a range of enjoyable travel and leisure activities. At the same time, our Rewards partners are introduced to passionate consumers. Everyone wins.” The launch of PLAYSTUDIOS’ loyalty program for Tetris is aptly timed to the debut of Apple Original Films’ Tetris, a thriller based on the true story of American video game salesman Henk Rogers (played by Taron Egerton) and his discovery of Tetris in 1988. The film premiered at the 2023 SXSW Festival and is now available to stream globally on Apple TV+ Friday, March 31. To celebrate the launch of the rewards store in Tetris, PLAYSTUDIOS will be offering a limited-time one-month trial subscription for Apple TV+, where Tetris mobile players can enjoy the film for free. Tetris mobile players can earn in-game playAWARDS loyalty points by completing levels, hitting daily goals, and reaching milestones within the game. They can then unlock rewards such as a one-month subscription to Apple TV+ by using those points. Currently, playAWARDS reaches 1.5 million daily active users (DAU) and more than 6 million monthly active users (MAU). Once playAWARDS is integrated into Tetris and, later this year, other PLAYSTUDIOS casual mobile games, such as Solitaire, Spider Solitaire, Sudoku, and Mahjong, the platform will reach a total of more than 3.5 million DAUs, and more than 12 million MAUs. With 200+ iconic hospitality, entertainment, and leisure brands across 20 countries and four continents -- such as MGM Resorts International, Norwegian Cruise Line, Wolfgang Puck, Resorts World, IHG Hotels & Resorts, Gray Line Tours and more, PLAYSTUDIOS players have used their loyalty points to purchase more than 12 million rewards, valued at over $500 million to date. PLAYSTUDIOS secured the exclusive global rights to develop and publish for Tetris across mobile platforms in November 2021. In addition to Tetris, PLAYSTUDIOS’ award-winning games lineup includes myVEGAS Slots, myVEGAS Blackjack, myVEGAS Bingo, POP! Slots, MGM Slots Live, and myKONAMI Slots. All titles are available as free downloads via iOS, Android, and on Facebook in your browser. About PLAYSTUDIOS, Inc.
