Nice is best made known for its software EnginFrame that simplifies the accessing and interaction with HPCs and visualization farms. With this acquisition, it is a part of Amazon upgrading AWS, the retailer’s cloud-computing platform, as it attempts to expand the business. On Tuesday, Amazon launched Lumberyard, a new 3D game engine that enables developers to build and operate cloud-based games with the help of AWS.
