Abstract: The synergy between cloud and virtualization has become popular in the recent years. Different handheld devices come with versatile and heterogeneous hardware and operating systems, resulting in incompatibility issues for application users. We extend the concept of virtualization to provide a set of virtual machines capable of emulating major operating systems. These virtual machines run on a Virtual Box Web Services in a SOA and are designed to be tailored to meet the specific requirements of a user through which they can run any software on any handheld device. Our service provides the user with the ability to make and run major operating systems using cloud of virtual machines. This allows unlimited portability between different hardware and software architectures if some minor requirements are met. We present the result of initial testing of running Nokia Symbian application on an android device.
