Abstract

We seek to build a simulation framework with which OnLive can evaluate the effectiveness of different application distribution strategies. In order to do this, we built a model of OnLive’s service and re-implemented their Intelligent App Distribution algorithm into our simulation. Using a genetic algorithm, we were able to programmatically construct new application distribution ratios that met demand equally as well as OnLive’s current ratios did while saving a large amount of disk space.
