STRATUS: Assembling Virtual Platforms from Device Clouds

Today's mobile and home computing devices are highly diverse in terms of their hardware configurations and capabilities, ranging from media players like iPods, to mobile phones, large-screen TVs with set top boxes, notebooks or laptops, home PCs with convenient keyboards and large disks. There is an increasing number of network-enabled computing devices in homes and offices, driven by continued improvements in device capabilities and network connectivity. By exploiting the virtualization technologies that have begun to pervade even the mobile domain, these devices' hardware components, such as displays, input devices, disks, or processors, can be decoupled from the physical platforms on which they reside to form a resource pool or device cloud.
