Mobile App Virtualization 101

  1. 1. Mobile App Virtualization 101
  2. 2. BYOD has forced IT departments to change the way that they manage and secure applications and devices.
  3. 3. Due to BYOD, IT must:  Provision and maintain mobile apps  Support phones and tablets from different manufacturers  Protect business data on mobile devices
  4. 4. Virtual Mobile Infrastructure (VMI) helps solve BYOD challenges by allowing users to access mobile apps that are hosted in remote data centers—so sensitive data is never stored on mobile devices. Virtual Mobile Infrastructure
  5. 5. VMI empowers organizations to:  Develops apps once and support any device  Centralize mobile app management  Detect unauthorized access or data loss  Enforce strong authentication and encryption
  6. 6. Not all VMI solutions are equal. Mobile App Virtualization offers better session density than other VMI solutions. It can run multiple, isolated user instances on a single Android operating system.
  7. 7. 64-bit Android Multi User Extensions User 1 User 3 User 2 HW Offload Engines Because mobile app virtualization does not need to run a separate Android VM per user, it delivers 8 to 10x better density compared to full OS virtualization1 Android VM 1 Android VM n Mobile App Virtualization Full OS Virtualization Hypervisor 1 Density estimate based on a 16 MB mobile app running on a 1 GB Android system.
  8. 8. Mobile app virtualization requires fewer servers, so it lowers hardware and operating costs.
  9. 9. The cost savings are even greater in the cloud. Organizations can rent one VM for hundreds of users rather per user.
  10. 10. Mobile app virtualization:  Accelerates app “boot up time”  Reduces storage requirements  Processes input events and images at the app level to maximize performance
  11. 11.  64-bit Android VM needs more than 2GB of RAM  More VMs will require • Large data center with higher power and cooling costs • Complex IT management • Expensive external storage solution • Additional VM management solution like OpenStack  Most VMI solutions require professional services • Not a drop in solution • High initial setup cost and time Cost and Scalability of Alternative Approaches
  12. 12. Android VM App App Display Audio Input Simple Doesn’t Scale… XEN/KVM - HYP Base Linux or DOM0 Linux QEMU – Emulation X-Win VMI Remote Protocol  QEMU overhead is substantial.  All devices such as display are emulated.  The amount of traffic between VM and host will be enormous. A 1080p emulated device will consume 2 Xeon cores. 10+ Gbs Display Audio Touch
  13. 13. Capturing Encrypted Data Multi-User Android Runtime Secure Container Secure SSL Proxy File Scanner Secure I/O Monitor for Keystroke & Video App Behavior Scanner Network Scanner
  14. 14. Mobile App Virtualization: Security  Centralized storage of data – Prevents data loss from device theft  Centralized patch management – Eliminates concerns about devices with vulnerable or unpatched software  Optional user monitoring – Records sessions for forensics
  15. 15. Monitor User and Application Activity  Dashboard of system status  Detailed logs of user activity  Ability to record full user session  Geo-tracking
  16. 16. Mobile App Virtualization Architecture VMI Security Gateway Clients Authentication Server Benefits  Very high density  Apps can share resources like GPU  Easy to manage  No need for expensive storage Considerations  Cannot define hardware resources per session 64-bit Android Multi User Extensions User 1 User 3 User 2 HW Offload Engines
  17. 17. Reasons to Consider Mobile App Virtualization Low Hardware Costs High User Density Streamlined Management in the Cloud Accelerated Boot Up Time and Responsive User Interface
