Mobile devices contain fundamentally different hardware to an x86 PC, but they all run Java! JPC makes it possible to take legacy software, particularly DOS applications, and run them on handheld devices without the need to rewrite them.
For example below JPC has booted original FreeDOS and started the orginal Mario Bros game. The software thinks it's got a Pentium II processor and floppy drive when in fact its running on a Nokia N95 mobile phone with an ARM 11 cpu and Flash memory!
Mobile business needs freedom but maintaining data integrity, security and backups becomes increasingly complex as an organisation grows. Centralising data on servers and letting users access hosted PCs via "dumb" terminals is one popular solution, but its scale is limited to the server's ability to manage parallel sessions.
With more powerful devices like netbooks/UMPCs, JPC can run the processor intensive work on the mobile device, and the server need only send and receive data when required. A single server can therefore support many more users in parallel, and as data state is easy to replicate to secondary systems the entire mobile workforce can be provided with a "hot" fail-over. This backup server could be in a completely different datacentre if necessary, and so JPC could provide a key component to ultimate disaster recovery.For more information please contact us.
