OnLive Releases New Cloud Based PaaS for Cross Platform Deployment of Graphics Intensive Apps
|Richard Harris in Enterprise Thursday, June 12, 2014|
OnLive, a cloud gaming and computing services company, has launched CloudLift Enterprise, a new cloud-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) which offers businesses the ability to stream latency-sensitive Graphics Intensive Applications (GIAs), such as high-definition interactive demos, simulations and 3D programs, from the cloud to virtually any device instantly.
OnLive CloudLift Enterprise is particularly suited for delivering latency-sensitive GIAs over nearly any network to a wide array of thin clients including tablets, mobile devices and Mac and PC laptops.
Commonly used mobile devices and laptops have limited CPU/GPU processing and memory available, and are not able to run many demanding applications. OnLive CloudLift Enterprise helps solve that problem with securely streaming applications from either a private on-premises data center, or OnLive’s fully managed, hosted cloud, to the full range of users’ devices.
The applications and data reside in the secure data center and only pixels are streamed to end users’ devices, protecting applications and data from piracy and malicious use. OnLive’s platform constantly monitors changing network conditions, including throughput, latency and packet loss, and automatically adapts the pixel stream to provide a consistent and stable video and audio stream to end users, instantly.
The result is a highly responsive, visually crisp experience that feels local, delivered on an array of end-point devices, for a wide variety of applications and variable network conditions. Efficiencies across the solution allow for network bandwidths as low as 2Mbps to still deliver the required user experience.
OnLive CloudLift Enterprise features a simplified on-boarding process that supports off-the-shelf SKUs of the most sophisticated software packages.
OnLive CloudLift Enterprise is available as an on-premises solution or as a fully managed and hosted solution in OnLive’s data centers. OnLive CloudLift Enterprise is being launched in the U.S. and Western Europe and supports multiple client platforms, including Windows, iOS, Android and Mac.
