Transparent computing is a novel, pervasive computing applied paradigm in which users can transparently utilize operating systems and upper software resource as a disposable resource while obtaining a full desktop computing experience. This paper presents the implement architecture of Transparent Computing, which will be implemented as a platform that can provide on-demand the full functionality of desktop computing over networks. All the user-needed software programs and data are centralized on servers, and when demanded by the users of client devices, the needed software resource is transparently downloaded from servers and executed locally as computing services. In our view, this design is a feasible approach to provide on-demand desktop computing in a pervasive computing environment.Transparent Computing [1] is a novel, pervasive computing applied paradigm in which users can transparently utilize operating systems and upper software resource as a disposable resource while obtaining a full desktop computing experience.
