A Review and Research towards Mobile Cloud Computing
|Name||A Review and Research towards Mobile Cloud Computing|
With an explosive growth of the mobile applications and emerging of cloud computing concept, the Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) has become a potential technology for the mobile service users. MCC integrates the technology of cloud computing with mobile environment and has taken part of major discussion thread in the IT world since 2009. The ABI Research predicts that the number of mobile cloud computing subscribers is expected to grow from 42.8 million (1.1% of total mobile users) in 2008 to 998 million (19% of total mobile users) in 2014. Despite of this hype achieved by mobile cloud computing, the growth of mobile cloud computing subscribers is still below expectations. According to the recent survey conducted by the International Data Corporation, most IT Executives and CEOs are not interested in adopting such services due to the drawbacks associated with this (e.g., battery life, storage, and bandwidth), environment (e.g., heterogeneity, scalability, and availability), and security (e.g., reliability and privacy). In spite of various efforts to overcome these, there are a number of loopholes and challenges that still exist in the security policies of mobile cloud computing. This paper will give a review of various challenges in this field and measures to overcome such.
