» Overcast architecture

From a developer's perspective an Overcast account allows to create and manage multiple multiplayer apps, each running a number of game servers (SmartFoxServer 2X) in one or more regions.

Additionally you can also add one ore more MySQL instances for persistence and storage that SmartFoxServer can talk to and control.

The diagram below illustrates the hierarchy from the user's account down to each individual server:
