Mobile Platform Virtualization
Mobile Platform Virtualization
As mobile phones have become more powerful, phones now offer music, video, cameras, and built-in GPS capabilities beyond their basic phone functionality. Rich applications are being built day by day to utilize the OS. The risk of not securing and managing employee-owned devices if they contain conﬁdential information is signiﬁcant and managing a wide variety of devices is complex in terms of both cost and security.
Security is a severe issue for mobile handsets running an open-source operating system. There are already a signiﬁcant number of known viruses, and their numbers are growing fast for mobile phones but still lag far behind the number of known PC viruses. Real-time virtualization solutions offer robust security via hardware-enforced memory isolation of partitions, isolating each operating system from the others and preventing cross-corruption. Besides, speciﬁc sections may be added and used to execute secure applications in small certiﬁable environments protected from the more extensive open background or real-time operating system (RTOS) running in other partitions. Security cannot be an afterthought.
KVM stands for Kernel-based Virtual Machine. It is a total virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions. KVM has limited capabilities and does not provide floating-point arithmetic.
KVM contains a kernel module, KVM.ko, which provides the core virtualization infrastructure, and a processor-specific module, KVM-intel.ko or KVM-and.ko, depending on the CPU manufacturer (Intel or AMD).
VMware Mobile Virtualization Platform (MVP) is a slim layer of software put on a mobile phone to separate the applications and data from the underlying hardware. By VM, communication is done directly. Virtual machines are based on computer architectures and give the functionality of a physical/existing computer. It is optimized to run efficiently on low-power, low-memory mobile phones. MVP is planned to enable handset vendors to bring phones to market faster and make them easier to manage.
- VM provides
- Garbage collection.
- Exception handling.
- Code optimization etc.
Collaboration Applications for Mobile Platforms:
Mobile phones have evolved rapidly in the past few years. The latest mobile phones also provide various networking options such as cellular, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and WiMAX, which serve a range of coverage bandwidth requirements. Today, many collaboration technologies are widely used, such as email, instant messaging, data conferencing, workﬂow, wiki, and social networking systems. Collaboration technologies based on mobile phones have unique advantages over laptops and desktop systems because they are lightweight and can ﬁt into pockets or purses.
Collaboration software on mobile hand-held devices provides the ability to be productive wherever you are. In this new era of mobile computing, the next generation of collaboration technologies on mobile phones is being developed to enable consumers to collaborate anytime, anywhere, using just their mobile phones. Unison Technologies recently announced its free uniﬁed communications software, offering a direct challenge to industry giants Microsoft and Google.
