Grid and Cloud computing are well known topics, and currently one of the focus of many research and commercial projects. Nevertheless, the transparent access to Grid facilities from mobile devices (like PDAs or smartphones) is normally out of the scope of those initiatives, taking into account the intrinsic limitations of such devices: screen size and resolution, storage capacity, computational power, etc. To provide an integrated solution for mobile access to Grid computing, aspects like Virtual Organizations (VOs) support, graphical job management, flexible authentication and access to the file system user's volume in the Grid from a mobile device should be covered. That is the purpose of XtreemOS-MD, the mobile flavour of XtreemOS - a Linux-based operating system to support VOs for Grids -, the transparent access to Grid facilities from mobile devices.
