An Efficient Application Virtualization Mechanism Using Separated Software Execution System
With the development of cloud computing and virtualization technologies, application virtualization becomes an innovative software usage model. However, the existing solutions show a very limited performance on 3D graphics applications. To solve the problems, the authors propose a new application virtualization mechanism using separated software execution system. The proposed system does not execute 3D rendering commands or graphic commands of the 3D graphics application at the hosted server but delivers them to client via the Internet and executes them using the client's graphic device. This mechanism enhances the hosted server's performance for desktop virtualization service of 3D rendering applications.
