Oracle and SUN Yesterday (today if you're in the US), Sun released the latest version of its virtualisation solution, VirtualBox 3.1. Among speed improvements and other smaller features, the biggest news is that Virtualox 3.1 introduces something called teleportation: you can move running VMs between machines - servers or clients, different architectures, different host operating systems, it doesn't matter to VirtualBox. Coincidentally, this reminded me of an idea I once had about moving running applications between machines.

Look up ubiquitous computing in scholarly articles and start from there. It's not my field, but it's a pretty developed one, and they answer alot of your questions there ;)

I actually saw and worked on articles on the idea behind the "teleportation" feature actually in school, 2 years ago. It's fun seeing it "in the real world"!
