The Anbox Cloud Dashboard serves a web based application to manage applications and streaming sessions. Create and stream Android applications through your web browser directly

Anbox Cloud - Dashboard

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.
