Offloading in Mobile Cloud Computing

Abstract Mobile devices suffer from poor battery life, limited resource, and limited storage capacity. To deal with these constraints, offloading is performed. Offloading refers to a mechanism where data storage and computations are done inside the remote cloud instead of the mobile device. Consequently, the battery life of the device is increased as well as the difficulties of storage and resource limitations are removed. In this chapter, we have discussed on offloading with its applications toward energy-efficiency.
Key Words: offloading, energy, cloud, mobile cloud computing.
