Presented by Chetan Venkatesh
What happens when we take the most powerful trends in computing (stateless desktop virtualization, private/public clouds, and pervasive connectivity) and project a trajectory to 2015? The result is that desktop computing looks nothing like we think it will. The 2015 desktop is a fluid and dynamic blend of services aggregated from the enterprise and consumer clouds adaptable to any device. In this session, Chetan Venkatesh explores potential models, architecture and looks at a few prototypes that might eventually turn to reality.
Concepts covered include:
- A new componentized view of the OS: statelessness is more than virtualizing applications and user data
- The three clouds: The Here Cloud, Near Cloud and Far Cloud
- Latency and IO: fluid computing
- The blended desktop: architecture and implementation
Chetan will demo several “application VMs” (VMs built for just a single application) blending together to create a desktop session. Some of the VMs will be corporate IT apps other will be consumer ones. He’ll then demo how those services can run and migrate dynamically between different clouds—the here cloud (my devices), near cloud, (closest datacenter), and far cloud (the service provider) based on different conditions (IO, latency, SLA etc.).
