Abstract

Current mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, netbooks…), widely used nowadays, can run potent native applications, but they cannot support typical desktop applications from any operating system. Since modern devices support recent web standards as HTML5, it is possible to develop a solution based on a thin web client to grant remote access to desktop applications offered under a SaaS model. This paper proposes the development of an innovative remote desktop system able to detect application content and encode it efficiently in real-time, to support an optimal visualization on clients, combining both remote desktop and streaming protocols. The system is hosted by a cloud infrastructure that ensures scalability, and it follows a pay-per-use model. Application providers can include their software in a dynamic cloud repository, from where it is launched remotely to meet final user demands.
