Amazon has today announced the launch of a new service called the Amazon AppStream Service which is being created by Amazon to enable developers to stream games and applications from cloud storage locations directly to any device.
Amazon has created a new Amazon AppStream Service to enable developers to build complex applications that run them on the low-tech devices without being constrained by the processing power of the smartphone, tablet or device the application is running on.
The new Amazon AppStream Service makes it easy for developers to support additional devices by simply creating new client applications. The service also keeps the proprietary code within the cloud making it easy to update and safe from tampering or theft. Amazon explains:
“AppStream lets you build complex applications that run from simple devices. Your application is not constrained by the compute power, storage, or graphical rendering capabilities of the device. Instead, it runs on our powerful new g2 instance type and can take advantage of all that the instance has to offer, including high-performance GPU-powered rendering of 2D and 3D graphics.
Because your application runs in the cloud, you can support additional device types by simply creating additional client applications. Your development investment in the core application logic, the database access, and some (possibly even all) of the user interface remains applicable, regardless of the device used to access your application. Further, your proprietary code remains in the cloud, where it is easy to update, safe from tampering, and resistant to theft.”
