A virtual network computing based architecture for accessing the desktops of remote computers from a cellular phone. A viewer is provided on the cellular phone that enables the user to see and manipulate the desktop of various remote systems such as MS Windows, Macintosh, and UNIX. The system to be accessed must be running a VNC server and it must be attached to a network.. In this architecture, a mobile user exploits Virtual Machine (VM) technology to rapidly instantiate customized service software on a nearby cloudlet, and then uses that service over a wireless LAN.
