The unabated flurry of research activities to augment various mobile devices by leveraging heterogeneous cloud resources has created a new research domain called Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC). In the core of such a non-uniform environment, facilitating interoperability, portability, and integration among heterogeneous platforms is nontrivial. Building such(More)
Recently, Cloud-based Mobile Augmentation (CMA) approaches have gained remarkable ground from academia and industry. CMA is the state-of-the-art mobile augmentation model that employs resource-rich clouds to increase, enhance, and optimize computing capabilities of mobile devices aiming at execution of resource-intensive mobile applications. Augmented(More)
Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) is the state-ofthe-art mobile computing technology aims to alleviate resource poverty of mobile devices. Recently, several approaches and techniques have been proposed to augment mobile devices by leveraging cloud computing. However, long-WAN latency and trust are still two major issues in MCC that hinder its vision. In this(More)
Mobile devices, especially smartphones are increasingly gaining ground in several domains, particularly healthcare, tele-monitoring, and education to perform Resource-intensive Mobile Applications (RiMA). However, constrained resources, especially CPU and battery hinder their successful adoption. Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) aims to augment computational(More)
The vision of augmenting computing capabilities of mobile devices, especially smartphones with least cost is likely transforming to reality leveraging cloud computing. Cloud exploitation by mobile devices breeds a new research domain called Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC). However, issues like portability and interoperability should be addressed for mobile(More)
Job scheduling is one of the most important research problems in distributed systems, particularly cloud environments/computing. The dynamic and heterogeneous nature of resources in such distributed systems makes optimum job scheduling a non-trivial task. Maximal resource utilization in cloud computing demands/necessitates an algorithm that allocates(More)
Hybrid Mobile Cloud Computing (HMCC) refers to a Mobile Computation Outsourcing (MCO) model that exploits hybrid granular cloud-based resources composed of coarse-, medium-, and fine-grained resources interconnected by wireless and wired networks to augment mobile devices. Leveraging single type of granules for augmentation (i.e., vertically heterogeneous)(More)
In Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC), Virtual Machine (VM) migration based process offloading is a dominant approach to enhance Smart Mobile Devices (SMDs). A challenging aspect of VM deployment is the additional computing resources usage in the deployment and management of VM which obliges computing resources for VM creation and configuration. The management of(More)
