xCloud cloud games are mainly providedXboxHost game, andMicrosoftSpecially designed for itserver. In a recent interview with Fortune Magazine, the Microsoft Xbox team also unveiled the vCloud cloud game server.
Although this generation of Xbox hosts is based on the x86 architecture, and the operating system is based onWindowsSystem customization. But in fact, Microsoft did not use the general x86 server hardware, but built a number of Xbox One S motherboards, which also simplified the difficulty of Microsoft's design server.
In the interview, Kareem Choudry, head of Microsoft's streaming business, demonstrated the construction of a single server, where the server is a 2U rack and has eight Xbox One S motherboards in a single unit. A data center consisting of these servers will provide players with cloud gaming services.
The real server looks like this too
However, there is still doubt that these "server version" Xbox One S will only perform game screen rendering or assume tasks such as providing game selection menus for players.
Although Microsoft has not officially launched xCloud cloud game service like Google, with the completion of infrastructure and other aspects, Microsoft's cloud games will become one of the players' choices.
