For gamers, the platform allows them to own all earned rewards from participating games and exchange those rewards for cash on the QX mobile app.
Rackspace Technology is building a streaming data processing system capable of injecting data streamed from a large volume of QX partners. This includes developing a robust CI/CD pipeline that includes Branch Structure, Automatic/Manual Approval Process, Customer-driven Deployment Strategy, Streaming Data Processing System, an enhanced Partner Portal, as well as Services and Methods to retain historical data. Additionally, Rackspace will deploy necessary databases, APIs, and required AWS infrastructure for the platform to scale optimally to millions of users across the globe.
“The project with Rackspace Technology is a critical milestone for QX to raise additional funding and move into the next phase of our product launch,” said Jim Mulford, Founder and CEO of QX. “With the Rackspace Technology AWS implementation, we will be better positioned in the market to support both gamers and game publishers with real-life rewards-driven incentives for achieving specific goals in games.”
