Migration Comparison Intro

Parallel and distributed computing become more lucrative as the limits of sequential processing, and the development of networks of computers overtake the normal concepts of computing.

At the same time, as hardware architecture evolves and becomes increasingly heterogenous, techniques for building portable applications are gaining popularity (sometimes to the point of creating crazes.

Among all the techniques whose exploration has just begun, Migration is a concept that appears as a natural solution to adaptative distribution, and introduces a new point of view on portability: fine-grained computer objects are dynamically "migrated" from computer to computer, so as to optimize computer resource usage.
