Mobile Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing provides such smartphones with a rich experience in Internet media and requires less processing, less power. In terms of Mobile Cloud Computing, data is stored in the cloud and processed in the cloud. And mobile devices act as display media.

Smartphones are used today by combining apps that consume web resources with rich cloud services. The cloud deploys these web services.

In the market today are available a plethora of smartphones. Most of these phones run on operating systems such as Android from Google, iOS from Apple and Samsung’s Tizen OS. All of these operating systems supports applications that are installed in the cloud by third parties.

Architecture in the

Four forms of cloud services are included in MCC:

  • Distant mobile cloud
  • Distant Immobile Cloud
  • Proximate mobile computing
  • Proximate immobile computing
  • Hybrid

The following diagram illustrates the mobile cloud computing architectural framework:

Mobile Cloud Computing



Despite substantial growth in the field of mobile computing, several problems still exist:

Effective transmission

Data between the cloud and mobile devices should be transmitted regularly.

Architectural Concerns

Due to heterogeneous environments, mobile cloud computing is needed to make architecture neutral.

VM migration

There are challenges faced in porting a resource-intensive application to the cloud. Since the application would need to run off a virtual machine; the strain on the system is enormous and adds to problems of program execution.

Network Congestion

The workload has been increased to allow seamless connectivity between cloud and mobile devices due to the continuous rise in demand for mobile cloud services.

Privacy and security

Transmission of personal details over a cloud based medium continues to pose a significant challenge as privacy and security of confidential personal data is paramount.
