Introducing Stream Computing

Netzyn’s Stream Computing (SC) builds the foundation for the future of end-user computing. SC moves the operating system, apps, and costly components from the device into the cloud, enabling powerful computing to be streamed to any device.

To use Smart Devices, we do dumb things

End-user computing used to be much more straightforward. We’ve gone from one computer per person to many computing devices per person. These “Smart Devices” pack powerful computers into pocket-sized devices, but more computers means more cost and more complexity for developers and consumers.

Devices are expensive, have fixed processing + storage, and quickly become obsolete.

Data and Apps are scattered across multiple devices and servers and are difficult to keep in-sync and up-to-date.

Development for multiple versions, platforms, environments is complicated, costly, and time-consuming.

Things are going to get worse

With the addition of new smart watches, smart AR glasses and billions of IOT devices, the number of OSs and copies of the same app will multiply beyond what can be managed.

The smart-device OS is the brains of computing, but the heart of the problem

The smart-device OS was designed for a different era, when people did all their computing on one device and kept data and applications locally. Now, in the connected era, our media, data and apps have moved to the cloud. We expect access and performance everywhere and anywhere, which means moving OS and Apps, basically the computing, to the cloud.

It’s time to move from the device to the cloud

Instead of Smart-Devices with a local OS, we need Simple-Devices with a cloud‑OS.

Stream Computing

Delivering powerful cloud-computing with affordable, simple‑devices.

SC takes the smart-device OS to the cloud, eliminating the need for each and every device to contain costly CPU, GPU, memory, and storage components. This means devices can be cheaper, while computing is more secure, universally compatible, and infinitely powerful with cloud-computing and storage.

Devices operate in silos Single unified operation of all devices
Devices frequently replaced to run new OS / apps Devices are future proof

The same smart-device OS capabilities,
plus unique benefits.

The smart-device OS architecture provides functionality that controls the Device Drivers, runs the Native App Environment and OS Environment, and provides the OS App graphical user interface.

SC provides the same OS capability, but distributes the functionality across a Native OS Server, multiple Native App Servers, and Device Drivers on one or more simple‑devices.

Smart-Device OS Architecture:
Monolithic OS Functions
Stream Computing Architecture:
Distributed OS Functions
Any app, on any device

SC’s server-side computing can run any app natively and stream the pixels to any Simple-Device or Smart-Device Device.

OS is an app

The SC OS runs on a server totally independent from apps and devices allowing people to buy any device and connect it to any OS.

New app model

Running native GUI apps on servers creates a completely unique peer-to-peer, single-tier app architecture, which greatly simplifies app creation and provides opportunities for new types of apps.

Universal OS & App API

The SC Protocol (SCP) makes SC OSs, apps and simple-devices completely interoperable. SCP 100% defines all aspects of SC and effectively provides the OS APIs.

Simple, scalable, and ready to stream.

NzOS is Netzyn's SC software solution for streaming the OS and apps to all devices.

NzOS server software provides the SC OS and App Environment for NzOS, Android, HTML5, Linux and Windows apps. NzOS device software supports both simple and smart devices. The NzOS platform scales from running on a single handheld server all the way to managing, provisioning and controlling 100K's of servers.
