In this thesis we discuss using a data center oriented algorithm to scale a multiplayer online game using docker containers. We implement a system on top of a multiplayer game capable of changing the size of the pool of resources, where all resources (servers) run inside containers. We evaluate the system by the use of a multiplayer game called Asteroids. We run different test cases where we simulate an input of clients over a time scale. We conclude from the test cases that it is possible to scale a multiplayer game using docker containers.
