HP Anyware is the enterprise software that IT needs to keep people and teams productive with secure access to their digital workspaces from any mix of infrastructure (cloud, data center, edge, workstation) and end-user device (PC, Mac, laptop, tablet, thin and zero client), anywhere.

In the hybrid environment we now work in, Game Development needs to be agile and responsive, no matter where developers are working from. 

There's good news for developers because game development in the cloud just got easier! Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 5 (UE5), the open and advanced real-time 3D creation tool, can now be used with HP Anyware, the flexible, collaborative and productive digital workspaces solution, on AWS Marketplace. 


New game development features from Unreal Engine 5


UE5 enables game developers and creators across industries to realize next-generation real-time 3D content and experiences with greater freedom, fidelity, and flexibility than ever before. UE5 is also compatible with Windows Server 2022 and continues to release exciting new features that help developers bring realistic interactive experiences to life with groundbreaking new features like Nanite and Lumen that provide a generational leap in visual fidelity, and enable worlds to be fully dynamic. 

Nanite enables game developers to directly import and replicate multi-million-polygon meshes without dropping framerates. In fact, game developers can maintain a real-time frame rate of even 60 fps without fidelity loss. 

And with Lumen, a fully dynamic global illumination and reflections solution, developers can create indirect lighting using Lumen that can be adapted on the fly, and you can see what the final product will look like in the editor. 


HP Anyware offers game developers security and productivity


HP Anyware is based on PC-over-IP (PCoIP®) technology and provides developers with high-performance options, including audio/video sync, whether they’re working in the office, at home, or in a client’s conference room. PCoIP’s low latency, color-accuracy and text clarity make HP Anyware a powerful solution for graphics-intensive use cases.  

Additionally, PCoIP has stringent security protocols built in—all PCoIP traffic has AES 256-encryption. Since PCoIP is a remote display protocol, business data never leaves the data center. HP Anyware streams game development content from the host server to the client end-point, so your intellectual property isn’t open to threats.
