A Service-Based Approach to Supporting Portable, Persistent, Private Computing Environments
Source: Dublin Institute of Technology
As the trend of mobile devices continues to grow, combined with ubiquitous internet access, the need to explore new approaches to supporting device collaboration and consolidation becomes evident. The authors present a framework which demonstrates a service based approach to delivering persistent, mobility enabled, and private computing environments to a range of clients, regardless of the underlying hardware, platform or location. The framework is built on top of solid foundation of open source networking technologies, thereby supporting the widest range of clients in a flexible, efficient and robust manner. In this paper, they outline the motivation, key concepts, design and system architecture of the framework.
