3Di to offer OpenSim in a cloud

Japan’s 3Di, Inc. announced a cloud-based offering for enterprises looking to deploy OpenSim virtual worlds. 3Di currently offers a server-based software solution, as well as a Web-based browser for its enterprise customers.

“Cloud computing services would allow enterprises to deploy 3D virtual worlds without needing to invest In their own hosting hardware infrastructure,” the company said in an announcement issued today.

The company was able to roll out the new service due to an infusion of $5 million in capital, but did not disclose who the investors were.

The money will also be used to further expand virtual worlds functionality, 3Di announced.
