Hey all, this is David Press and Doug Lardo, two engineers working on improving the data center networking that enables online services at Riot. This article is the third part in a series on exactly that topic, which begins with an overview from Jonathan of a platform we called rCluster.

My name is Jonathan McCaffrey and I work on the infrastructure team here at Riot. This is the first post in a series where we’ll go deep on how we deploy and operate backend features around the globe. Before we dive into the technical details, it’s important to understand how Rioters think about feature development. Player value is paramount at Riot, and development teams often work directly with the player community to inform features and improvements.
Welcome back readers to the Running Online Services at Riot blog series. My name is Maxfield Stewart and I’ve written before about how we use containers to build containers on an open source platform. Today’s article will dig into the five key requirements for any micro-service to become a live running application on our container platforms at Riot.
Hi, I'm Guy "RiotSomeOtherGuy" Kisel, a software engineer at Riot. You might remember me from Running an Automated Test Pipeline for the League Client Update. I work on the Riot Developer Experience team - our responsibilities include providing Jenkins servers and related infrastructure for engineers to use for building, testing, and shipping their software to the millions of players that play League of Legends.
In our previous article, we discussed some of the networking involved in rCluster, Riot’s solution for worldwide application deployments. Specifically, we talked about the concept of overlay networks, an implementation we leverage called OpenContrail, and how that solution plays with Docker. In this post, we’ll build on that foundation and dive deeper on other topics: infrastructure as code, load balancing, and failover testing.
In the previous article in this series I discussed the ecosystem of supporting services that allow us to operate micro-services in production. If our micro-services are our carries and those tools are our supports, what about our junglers? That’s where our developer ecosystem for cluster management comes in.
Hi, I’m Guy Kisel, and I work on the League client update’s Test, Build, and Deploy team, here to talk about the project's automated testing.
Hey there! My name is Michal 0xDEADB33F Ptaszek, and I’m a software architect at Riot. Today I would like to talk about communication. But not the kind of communication you’re probably thinking of. I want to talk about the other, more exciting kind of communication: LoL players communicating with chat servers during a tense game; authentication servers communicating with the LoL client on login; microservices that route state changes between clients in the middle of the night - you know, that kind of communication.
Hey there! I’m Tyler "Riot Adabard" Turk, Senior Infrastructure Engineer, and I work on the Player Accounts team at Riot. The Player Accounts team is responsible for every player's ability to log in and manage account data, and we recently re-architected our system to become GDPR compliant, provide a better player experience, and enable Riot to become a multi-product company in the future.
