Agawi announces True Cloud reference platform
Agawi teams with Nvidia Grid and others to streamline cloud gaming
Cloud gaming firm Agawi will be showing off its True Cloud reference platform at this week's Cloud Gaming Europe conference in London. The platform represents Agawi working with other companies like hardware vendor Nvidia, managed service provider Blue Box, hosting company Peer 1, and XO Communications to make cloud gaming simple for content publishers.
"The previous iterations of cloud gaming have relied on piecemeal efforts and proprietary designs," said Agawi co-founder Rajat Gupta. "And in today's infinite-device landscape, developers that don't create numerous versions of their games have been struggling to get maximum distribution and reach. Agawi True Cloud requires only one version of a game to ever be written in the cloud, and we can make it accessible on any post-PC era device-meaning that one game can reach an exponentially larger audience on tablets, phablets, TVs and next generation game devices like Project Shield."
Agawi's True Cloud will be based on Nvidia Grid cloud servers. With Agawi's CloudPlay, developers can create a single version of a title for streaming to any device connected to the cloud.
"By incorporating Grid servers, Agawi's True Cloud is realizing the dream of gaming on any device, anywhere," said Phil Eisler, general manager of Nvidia Grid cloud gaming at NVIDIA. "The 12 GPUs found inside Grid K340 servers are designed to enable the smooth, seamless interactive experience of a high-performance gaming PC on mobile devices and unlock the cloud as the universal vehicle for fast and economical gaming."
Interested partners can see Agawi's True Cloud at Cloud Gaming Europe on February 21 and 22.
