Stick Tennis is a challenging and entertaining virtual pro tennis game where players can choose their favorite rock star tennis player with individualized, signature characteristics.  With more than seventy players to choose from, the app offers high-octane action on the court, and while anyone can play, only the very skilled can master it.  The developers have designed Stick Tennis to closely mimic the physics of a real match, so tactical agility is a prized attribute that can rocket gamers to the top of the ranks. 

The Daily Challenge presents a different pair of world-class players every day of the week where gamers can earn trophies. The Slams let users select a famous avatar from the top 16 seeds to compete in a tournament and World Domination enables the top competitors to meet their match.  Casual Sets allow beginners to practice their shots and move their way up levels of difficulty.  The Friends Challenge invites gamers to throw down the gauntlet to see who performs better against the same virtual opponent.  With all this variety of competition, users remain glued to the action.

In addition, the game has some extra details like varying court surfaces and realistic swings, so players can actually develop their own style.  Users can buy rackets to improve their stats.  This array of unique functions means endless excitement for both seasoned gamers and tennis enthusiasts.

The crisp, responsive gameplay of Stick Tennis rewards nimbleness and technique on the latest Android* tablets.  The stunning graphics and satisfying sound effects give each match an enhanced, realistic feel.  Interactivity, accessible with these powerful tablets' high-speed Internet, measure individual achievement and encourage improvement.  As Intel® Software Partners, Stick Sports had access to extensive business and technical resources through the Intel® Developer Zone.

"We worked hard to make Stick Tennis a breathtakingly lifelike gaming experience," says Paul Collins, CEO of Stick Sports.  "The smooth touch capabilities and sharp graphics on Android* tablets make for sensational animation that can reach an even broader gaming community." 

Stick Tennis is available for immediate download on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.sticksports.sticktennis&hl=en_US

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

While traditional SAN-based clusters are not possible in these environments, SANless cluste...
