Since its launch in 2009, Minecraft has come a long way, but all online services were hosted by Amazon Web Services. A powerful and accessible solution at the time, but the situation has changed…

Microsoft finally switches Minecraft to its Azure servers

In recent years, Microsoft has thus transferred the majority of Cloud services operated by Mojang Studios from AWS to its own Azure services. The brand indicates that the migration will be total by the end of the year.

Minecraft will therefore now be fully at Microsoft and it is therefore the Azure division that will be responsible for the 126 million active players. The Azure division has shown particularly impressive growth in recent years with + 30% revenue each quarter. If Microsoft took more than 5 years to operate the switch, it was above all to respect the culture of Mojang which was precisely at the heart of the creation of Minecraft.
