A little company called Little Eye Labs, based in Bangalore, and which analyzes the performance of Android apps will be acquired by Facebook with a deal ranging between $10-15 million.

It’s isn’t surprising that this acquisition came about considering how Facebook has been lagging behind when it comes to its focus on mobiles, and with almost 874 million of its users now accessing Facebook through these devices.

Of course, Facebook has been on the lookout for startups such as Little Eye Labs and before which, it had already acquired Parse in April this year, which is a mobile-backend-as-a-service startup.

This comes as good news not only to Little Eye Labs but also to a number of Indian startups for whom, progress in the form of acquisitions have been difficult to come by.

In fact, Little Eye Labs had already pitched to Twitter but then agreed to a deal with Facebook since the offer was much better.

According to certain sources, the team that formed this startup will move to Facebook’s headquarters in the United States and will continue to work as part of the company’s mobile engineering team.

The startup first gained visibility in Seedcamp, London where it was refining its product along with 20 other companies. What was notable was the way the tool created by this startup fixed a bug in Google I/Q app, and was the reason why Gaurav Lochan, who worked with Flipkart earlier, moved on to work with Little Eye Labs.

All the startup’s founders worked at IBM together, starting Little Eye Labs in August 2012.

Internet sweepstakes cafes have a choice when it comes to how their games are deployed. They can either have a client-server model that requires the Internet sweepstakes software to be physically installed on each gaming terminal along with having a server and Point of Sale system on-site. This is the traditional model that most businesses use to run their Internet cafe games.

However, many sweepstakes companies have found that a web-based sweepstakes model offers them several advantages over the client-server model. Companies such as SweepsCoach have helped Internet sweepstake cafes become more profitable and reduce the backend support needed to run their business by choose a web-based sweepstakes model.

With a web-based model, everything other than the physical terminals needed to play games is done through cloud-based computing. This means that the server isn’t based on-site but is housed in a secure location dedicated to server maintenance. The game machines and POS systems all access information from the servers remotely.

One major advantage of the web-based server model is that you can greatly reduce your upfront cost for opening an Internet sweepstakes cafe. Instead of having to pay thousands of dollars to purchase and install an on-site server, you can rent server space on a monthly basis for a fraction of the cost. This also comes with maintenance and service in case there is a problem.

Along with convenience and affordability, moving to a web-based model gives sweepstakes cafe owners the ability to expand their business by catering to players at home. If there are no terminals at the cafe, you can let players go home or another location to play your games, or they can even play when your business is closed.
