Abstract

This article describes a system for moving the active application state of a program between homogenous systems. In this system the applications need not be written to support the mechanism, and can be shifted without the application moving itself to a specific state. This is described as a workstation tool for productivity since it would allow the redistribution of user application to balance workload, or to continue working uninterrupted whilst performing maintenance requiring reboot to each machine in turn.
