Quasardb Streamlines Development for a Real-Time Analytics Database

Quasardb* is a distributed, transactional database that gives users instant access to data from any kind of analytics engine―enabling companies to do real-time analytics. It can scale both horizontally (across several servers) and vertically (using the capabilities of one server) to deliver first-class performance and outstanding return on investment (ROI).

    大屏幕电视,作为客厅中的家庭共享娱乐设备,除了观看电视/视频之外,互动/游戏娱乐也是重要的内容。电视上的互动和电视游戏,在国内外的表现有很大的区别。

    电视游戏(TV Game/Console Game),指的是使用电视作为显示设备来玩的电子游戏。在国外,尤其是欧美日国家,游戏主机的普及率较高;玩家可以稳定地获得高质量游戏。由于购买一款正版游戏往往需要付出相当于人民币几百元的钞票,玩家倾向于深度地玩每一款购买的游戏。

    而在国内,由于游戏主机售价普遍较高,再加上正版游戏的费用,导致游戏主机在国内的销量和普及率处于很低的状态。所以在国内家庭客厅,主要显示设备是大屏智能电视。数据显示,2015年国内电视零售销量为4674万台,其中智能电视穿透率73%。所以国内的电视游戏指的是运行在智能电视上的游戏,且多为免费网络游戏,用户无需额外付出主机和单个游戏的购买费用(中国玩家长期习惯于网络游戏和免费获得的游戏)。

  • 案例分析:使用 CRI 中间件实现面向 Android* 的英特尔® X86 支持

    Android* devices powered by the Intel® Atom™ processor are rising in popularity, and supporting applications are being released continuously. To meet the needs of application developers focused on creating games for Android devices with Intel Atom processors, middleware companies began supporting x86. One such company, CRI Middleware Co., Ltd., offers runtime library x86 support for Android middleware. It has done this by changing the build settings of the makefile in the Android NDK and replacing the ARM* NEON* instructions. Included in x86 support of the middleware runtime library for Android devices is a plug-in for Unity*, a game engine developed by Unity Technologies, which allows developers to build games by simply setting the x86 folder as the build target with the Android NDK.
