Canonical debuts Anbox Cloud for highly scalable Android apps

siliconangle.com | January 21, 2020

Canonical Ltd. has come up with a way to distribute compute-intensive applications from the cloud so they can run seamlessly on low-powered Android devices.The solution, announced early today, is a platform called Anbox Cloud. It uses Android as a guest operating system to containerize workloads so they can easily be distributed from the cloud, where they run, to any kind of mobile device.
The ability to offload compute, storage and energy-intensive applications from devices to the cloud enables end-users to consume advanced workloads by streaming them directly to their device,” Canonical noted in its pitch. “Developers can deliver an on-demand application experience through a platform that provides more control over performance and infrastructure costs, with the flexibility to scale based on user demand.The basic idea is that Anbox Cloud makes it possible to run any application on any kind of Android device, regardless of that hardware’s compute capabilities. Canonical says use cases include cloud gaming, enterprise workplace applications, software testing and mobile device virtualization
