Anbox Cloud documentation

Anbox Cloud provides a rich software stack that enables you to run Android applications in the cloud for all kinds of different use cases, including high-performance streaming of graphics to desktop and mobile client devices.

Using container technology, Anbox Cloud is scalable from a single-machine installation that can run scores of single Android systems to an entire cluster of machines. It is based on powerful and battle-proven software from Canonical like LXD and Juju.

Core features

  • Simple and straightforward deployment
  • Management of the container and application life cycle while optimising for high density, performance and fast container boot times
  • Platform integration tools to allow, for example, integration of existing streaming solutions
  • Support for both x86 and Arm64 hardware, providing the same set of features

See the official Anbox Cloud website for more information.
