Cloud-based applications next step towards utility computing

A cloud computing firm, Numecent, has demonstrated cloud based games. Their technology, called ‘cloud paging‘, allows users to stream any application to their PCs. Unlike competing technologies, this technology runs the application at the user end, instead of on a server.

It works by analysing the code of a piece of software to discover the most-used elements and only delivering those to your PC. For large applications such as Photoshop, users normally only need around 5 per cent of the code to start using the program and the rest can be streamed in later.

This ability to remotely provide any application, on-demand, takes us one step closer towards the concept of utility computing.
