Anbox Cloud


Anbox Cloud offers a software stack that runs Android games and applications in the cloud enabling high-performance streaming of graphics and content 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. Depending on the target platform, payload, and desired application performance (e.g. frame rate), more than 100 containers can be run on a single ARMv8 server.

Anbox Cloud provides management of an entire cluster of servers running the Anbox software to maintain a single Android system per container. It is based on powerful and battle prooven software from Canonical like LXD or Juju.

  • Specialized management service to handle all aspects of the container and application lifecycle while optimizing the cluster for high density, performance and faster container boot times.
  • Platform integration tools including a rich SDK to allow integration of existing streaming solutions in the Anbox Cloud platform.
  • Support for both x86 and ARM64 hardware
  • Integrates with 3rd party solutions for binary translation solutions on AArch64-only hardware.
