Canonical introduced the new cloud service Anbox Cloud, which allows you to run applications on any system and play games created for the Android platform. Applications are launched on external servers using the Anbox open environment, with streaming output to the client system and transmitting events from input devices with minimal delays.
In addition to the Anbox environment, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and the open packages LXD, Juju and MAAS are used to organize the execution and orchestration of launching applications in containers. The components of the platform are developing as open projects, but in general, Anbox Cloud is a commercial product and is only available after filling out an application. The solution is optimized for servers based on Ampere (ARM) and Intel (x86) chips, and also supports graphics accelerator cards, such as Intel Visual Cloud Accelerator Card.
It is assumed that companies can use Anbox Cloud to transfer applications to public or private cloud platforms, making it possible to run them on any system without being tied to mobile devices. Game developers can use Anbox Cloud to expand their gaming audience by being able to play games from any system. Among the areas of application are mentioned: organization of game streaming services (Game streaming), providing access to applications through the cloud, creating virtual devices, organizing work with corporate mobile applications, testing mobile applications (emulation of various types of devices is supported).
