We have been hearing about the OnLive cloud-based gaming service for a while now. The service promises the ability to stream a library of video games to your TV or computer for a fixed monthly price.




Dell has announced today that it is teaming with OnLive on the cloud gaming service. The OnLive service is set to launch this week and Dell data center solutions are providing the muscle for the streaming service. Dell says that the OnLive service uses one of the largest GPU-powered server installations to date.


Dell says that the OnLive solution is also scalable as its needs grow. There is no mention of exactly how large the data center used by OnLive is. I hope that it has enough muscle to provide lag free gaming.
