Abstract

UnifiedSessionsManager - ctys

The "UnifiedSessionsManager" is a unified and simplified interface for usage and management of local and remote sessions on physical and virtual machines.

The main advance offered by the UnifiedSessionsManager is the simplified provisioning and daily use of complex runtime environments.

  • Management of distributed and stacked Virtual Machines.
  • Management of Desktops and Workspaces on Multiple Monitors.
  • Seamless access to all types of sessions.
  • Support of encrypted connections only, based on SSH.

Usability

The main building block for the casual daily useabilitiy is the handling of the desktop presentation of the managed entities supported by the "Xinerama" mode of X11.

Resources

Initial native support is provided for CLI, X11, VNC, QEMU, VMW(VMware-Workstation/Server/Player), XEN, and with the distributions CentOS/RHEL, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Debian, Ubuntu, OpenBSD, and Solaris.

Any other GuestOS is supported by means of control of the hypervisor.

Virtualization and Cloud Computing

The UnifiedSessionsManager provides an integration framework for operations and management of local and remote sessions on physical and virtual machines.

The conceptional building blocks for the establishment and management of location independent resources of interactive and server based services are implemented.

Therefore a generic abstraction layer is provided which integrates various hypervisors, remote access utilities and local desktop functionality into a neatless and simplified commandline interface.

The integration of physical and virtual machines with native OS access into netsted stacks of virtual machines - v-stacks - founds the basic services for advanced Cloud Computing.

A preview to the future of SOA and SaaS

The UnifiedSessionsManager provides particularly the environment for definition of virtual roaming services to be used as v-services consisting of v-modules. This is the perfect and possibly the only viable approach to handle "clouds of software services" in a dynamic online relocatable approach.
