Cloud Gaming Overview

Cloud gaming is a type of online gaming that runs video games on remote servers and streams them directly to a user's device, or more colloquially, playing a game remotely from a cloud. It contrasts with traditional means of gaming, wherein a game runs locally on a user's video game console, personal computer, or mobile device. All the heavy lifting will be done "in the cloud."

Cloud gaming platforms operate in a similar manner to remote desktops and video-on-demand services; games are stored and executed remotely on a provider's dedicated hardware and streamed as video to a player's device via client software. The client software handles the player's inputs, which are sent back to the server and executed in-game. Currently, there are two main types of cloud gaming: cloud gaming based on video streaming and cloud gaming based on file streaming.
