Narrows is the most content-heavy game we've ever made, and one of the most engaging and visually stunning games available on mobile VR to date. It's a shiny doubloon that you'll want to keep in your treasure chest of great VR games."

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
