App virtualization: New hotness?

March 8, 2012

application virtualization server software running on android phoneVirtualization of applications is becoming more reasonable. For example, they showed a smartphone being allowed to run as a server (yes, not normally done, but displays the low server requirements) that serves out the entire Photoshop app to a laptop. The laptop loads photoshop, albeit slowly at first, from the smartphone in under 20MB of streamed application byte-code content. I think that the streamed data then runs in a special virtualization agent (client) on the platform where you are wanting to run the application.

Is this amazing? I dont quite grasp how it could revolutionize anything. If anything, its another tool for enterprise to reduce costs via cloud use-cases.
