Development of a framework based in virtualization to be implemented in an information centre/ library (IC/LIB). This framework combines three technologies: virtualization, SQL, ADO.Net. It will be implemented in libraries and information centres to allow users/researchers to keep and synchronize the information with other devices and cloud computing. The individual virtual machine maintains all users’ work information after the end of the work session. However, the work information is accessible by synchronization with a cloud computer platform. Hyper-V 2012 R2 will support this framework.
