Canonical Sings Praises For Platform Putting Android In The Cloud by harrykinnng: 1:15am On Jan 24, 2020
Android is all up in the clouds, just where Canonical thought it could be, in working up its service called Anbox Cloud, announced earlier this week. The result: you can host Android apps in the cloud. The service will work on x86-based architectures and ARM-based architectures. Canonical, the publisher of Ubuntu, the Linux distribution, is going after the business crowd with this introduction.

Frederic Lardinois in TechCrunch: "Anbox runs the full Android system in a container, which in turn allows you to run Android application on any Linux-based platform...it allows enterprises to offload mobile workloads to the cloud and then stream those applications to their employees' mobile devices." The idea, pure and simple, is that enterprises, as Paul Hill in Neowin explained, get to distribute Android apps via the cloud in a container environment. Businesses that will use the service will know that the app is secure and independent of a device's capabilities, he said. As TechCrunch's Lardinois put it, "On Anbox Cloud, Android becomes the guest operating system that runs containerized applications." Tuesday's announcement from Canonical said its platform enabled enterprises to distribute applications from the cloud, and enterprises and service providers to deliver mobile applications "at scale, more securely and independently of a device's capabilities."

This would be a suitable way to present cloud gaming, enterprise workplace applications, software testing and mobile device virtualization. Stephan Fabel, director of product at Canonical, said, "Enterprises are now empowered to deliver high performance, high density computing to any device remotely, with reduced power consumption and in an economical manner." Meanwhile, TechCrunch noticed that "Outside of the enterprise, one of the use cases that Canonical seems to be focusing on is gaming and game streaming." Canonical was promoting the advantages of Anbox Cloud for graphic and memory-intensive mobile games. These can "be scaled to vast amounts of users while retaining the responsiveness and ultra-low latency demanded by gamers." Anbox Cloud could create "an on-demand experience" for gamers.
