Industry Sector

Telco, Cloud 


Business driver

  • Edge cloud requires initiatives for cloud gaming on Android platform  
  • 5G + edge bring low latency and high-throughput for cloud gaming, which improves user experience
  • More and more Android applications will migrate into edge compute platform. Building an android platform is necessary, and it's rigid demand. 


Business use cases

  1.   Android Cloud Gaming
  2.   AR/VR  Android Application 

Business Cost - Initial Build Cost Target Objective

Using virtualization technology instead of mobile chip board on ARM server will reduce the cost of android platform.  ARM server board also let android platform more flexible and more agile.

In order to support cloud gaming and AR/VR, ARM server need have GPU inside. 

  • 2 ARM Nodes
  • Kubernetes v 1.17 for ARM
  • Android 10.0
    • GPU (AMD, NVIDIA)
  • Android virtualization layer: Anbox, docker.


Business Cost – Target Operational Objective

It more like a cloud platform, but it's specific for android application.  

  • It needs Helm and Ansible for the automation and management tools to keep operational cost lower
  • It needs to monitor the status of android system status and application status. 
  • Maintain a mixed edge platform including x86 and ARM. It's more complex
  • Kubernetes v1.17 for ARM
  • Android 10.0
    • GPU (AMD, NVIDIA)
  • Host OS kernel optimization;
  • Android virtualization layer: Anbox, docker.
  • GPU (AMD, NVIDIA)
  • Both ARM and X86 can support it.


Security need

Security is very important in this use case, especially for containerized android system.
