Anbox Cloud - Application Registry

Anbox Cloud offers a software stack that runs Android applications in any cloud enabling high-performance streaming of graphics to desktop and mobile client devices.

At its heart, it uses lightweight container technology instead of full virtual machines to achieve higher density and better performance per host while ensuring security and isolation of each container. Depending on the target platform, payload, and desired application performance (e.g. frame rate), more than 100 containers can be run on a single machine.

For containerization of Android, Anbox Cloud uses the well established and secure container hypervisor LXD. LXD is secure by design, scales to a large number of containers and provides advanced resource management for hosted containers.

Also have a look at the official Anbox Cloud website for more information.

NOTE: Anbox Cloud is a paid offering. You will need a Ubuntu Advantage subscription for this charm to work. You can learn more at https://anbox-cloud.io

WARNING: The Ubuntu Advantage for Infrastructure token every user gets for free for personal use does *NOT work and will result in a failed deployment! You need to use a valid *Ubuntu Advantage for Applications** token to be able to deploy successfully.

Application Registry

The Anbox Application Registry, or AAR, charm provides a central repository for applications created on Anbox Cloud. It is extremely useful for larger deployments involving multiple regions in order to keep applications in sync.


This charm should be deployed on a single unit and connected with all ams units you want to synchronize.

$ juju deploy cs:~anbox-charmers/aar
$ juju config aar ua_token=<your UA token>

For more information on how to configure the Application Registry and its clients, visit the official documentation on https://anbox-cloud.io/docs/installation/installation-application-registry
