Linden Labs including Sansar and Second Life in the cloud

Linden Lab has spent over a decade optimizing the production operations for Second Life, an online 3D virtual world created by its users. With our new social VR platform, Sansar, we wanted to take our vision of virtual experiences to a whole new level of innovation in which AWS played a vital role. We’ll dive into Sansar’s AWS tech stack, an infrastructure built not only for technical robustness but also extreme scalability. We will discuss what the different use cases were between EC2 and Containers and how Lambda worked as a positive enabler for customization. Lastly, we’ll cover IAM, Security Groups and VPC, which we refer collectively as the “Great Wall of Preventing Unfortunate Design Decisions.”.

The Sansar Fashion Release

Sansar made available a new fashion release for their virtual reality client on December 18, 2017. This new grid is very much in its earliest stages, without too many interactive experiences or actions available to average users yet.

Strawberry Singh shares a fantastic look at some of the differences between Second Life and Sansar, specifically around the new innovations for clothing. These include:

  1. Stretching and moving cloth to wrinkle or move it very slightly.
  2. Simulating cloth to automatically fit pieces that don’t already fit
  3. Simulating cloth over any hairstyle, like hoodies!

You can see the complete release details, including an offer for 3D mesh clothing, at the Sansar website.
