Amazon AppStream vs Google Cloud Vision API: What are the differences?

Developers describe Amazon AppStream as "Stream resource intensive applications and games from the cloud". AppStream deploys and renders your application on AWS infrastructure and streams the output to mass-market devices, such as personal computers, tablets, and mobile phones. Because your application is running in the cloud, it can scale to handle vast computational and storage needs, regardless of the devices your customers are using. You can choose to stream either all or parts of your application from the cloud. Amazon AppStream enables use cases for games and applications that wouldn’t be possible running natively on mass-market devices. Using Amazon AppStream, your games and applications are no longer constrained by the hardware in your customer’s hands. On the other hand, Google Cloud Vision API is detailed as "Understand the content of an image by encapsulating powerful machine learning models". Google Cloud Vision API enables developers to understand the content of an image by encapsulating powerful machine learning models in an easy to use REST API.

Amazon AppStream belongs to "Application Streaming" category of the tech stack, while Google Cloud Vision API can be primarily classified under "Image Analysis API".

Some of the features offered by Amazon AppStream are:

  • Amazon AppStream includes a SDK that currently supports streaming applications from Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 to devices running FireOS, Android, iOS, and Microsoft Windows. &nbsp
  • A Mac OS X SDK is planned for 2014.
  • Remove Device Constraints- You can leverage the compute power of AWS to deliver experiences that wouldn’t normally be possible due to the GPU, CPU, memory or physical storage constraints of local devices.

On the other hand, Google Cloud Vision API provides the following key features:

  • Powerful Image Analysis
  • Insight From Your Images
  • Detect Inappropriate Content
