Software developer Unity Technologies has acquired Obvioos, the creator of cloud engine Furioos.
The deal was revealed in a blog update, with no value put on how much the engine giant paid for the French cloud outfit. Furioos allows users to have access to high-power GPUs to all them to do work, meaning intense computing power required by high-end applications can be run on any device connected to the internet.
Besides creating Furioos, the French company has a core focus on architecture and real estate through the use of virtual reality technology.
“We’re a small team with big goals,” said Obvioos Co-Founder and President Christophe Robert.
“By joining one of the leading 3D development platforms, we can better scale our video streaming services while closely aligning our technology with Unity. We’re extremely excited about what’s to come.”
