Ampere Altra and Ampere Altra Max are the most scalable Android hosting platforms in the world!
The Arm architecture has dominated the mobile processing market with its unrivaled ability to maximize power-efficiency and has powered billions of Arm-based processors used in mobile phones, laptops, tablets, IoT devices and embedded systems throughout the world. Running applications originally built for mobile or IoT platforms in the cloud is now possible with Ampere Cloud Native processors. There are many of them - over 2.56 million applications available Google Play store alone!*
For cloud hosted Android applications, instance density is everything. Ampere is the first platform to support 120 or more 3D cloud gaming instances per server. Ampere processors natively support both 32 & 64 bit Android applications and require no binary translation for maximum instance density! Ampere Altra and Altra Max processors are extremely efficient in running 3D game titles such as Platformer 3D and Bombsquad leaving plenty of CPU headroom for value added services to complete any Cloud Gaming or Cloud Phone solution.

Cloud phone or VMI (Virtual Mobile Infrastructure) is a diverse category including segments such as healthcare, government, and financial services. These industries often have data privacy concerns thus prompting them to build apps that keep information in secure cloud domains. Cloud phone usages also cater to a burgeoning tech savvy audience willing to experience live training, remote learning, tele-health, live streaming experiences and social media platforms. Many applications in this use case are not graphics intensive and can work very well without GPU assistance.
Cloud gaming on Arm represents a large application base of gaming titles that are native to Android OS and primarily targeted at the mobile and tablet markets. The installed base as well as new game developers have begun to look for alternative methods of delivering game content to users around the world freeing the developer from the restrictions and compatibility issues of developing for the myriad mobile devices. The cloud rendered game allows virtually unrestricted access to server-side resources needed to run ever more demanding games that are then streamed to any device. Ampere processors are built to deliver this experience at vast scale to a worldwide consumer market with the following benefits:
