Abstract: With the rapid growth of the mobile phone industry in recent years, consumer habits in using mobile applications have changed significantly. Mobile clients have replaced desktop computers as primary internet access devices. However, mobile phones have limited battery life, low processing power, and limited storage capacities. As mobile devices are easily lost or damaged, better data management schemes are also required. In this paper, a streamed application and data management system based on transparent computing technology is proposed to support more secure, better managed mobile phones. Experimental results show that the proposed system is a feasible and efficient solution for future mobile computing applications.

Keywords: transparent computing; application streaming; cache eviction; data synchronisation; mobile terminals; cloud computing; application management; data management; mobile phones; cell phones.
