Abstract

This publication proposes a method in which the desktop can switch automatically between the local and remote copy based on conditions set by the user. Not only is this a case of the user's computer system reaching a valid network, but this is also a case where the local copy may be used if network throughput deteriorates below a set throughput or a switch to the server copy if/when network throughput (as an example of a conditional measurement) re-establishes a minimal required throughput setting.
