Working in cloud environment and accessing its services is fascinating task. It is one of modern technological areas to work upon it for development of nation and increase economy rate. The paper deals with improving desktop cloud computing services with the help of technique called Memory Virtualization. Since virtualization is efficient to extent scalability of typical desktop-as-a-service and make it suitable for Wide Area Network (WAN's) environments. Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) in cloud computing means that user can access its own desktop services as well as services of other desktops located on remote servers. Memory virtualization not only works with virtual memory but it also maps physical memory instructions to actual machine memory. The instructions stored in machine memory are checked with incoming user client requests. Similar matched queries will result in generation of data using one of recovery techniques called Shadow Paging Technique. Data is produced and stored in remote cloud environment where user can access the data to perform their tasks. The proposed systematic model for accessing desktop services is shown in following paper by using memory virtualization technique. A comparison is also made between para-virtualization technique and memory virtualization technique that gives solution in favor of memory virtualization technique.
