Offloading Computation for Efficient Mobile Cloud Computing


Background/Objectives: Mobile and cloud are two of the most used technologies today and it is only a matter of time before these technologies combine. In this study we try to combine these two. Method/Statistical Analysis: To study the combination of these two technologies, we offloaded a certain amount of computational work from a mobile device (An android device in our case) to a cloud server (AWS) and studied the real world performance benefits and battery gains that we achieved with it. Findings: We found a clear gain in terms of the load on the CPU of the device as well as the battery life consumption. This could lead to high real world gains in performance. Applications/Improvements: This technology can be used to create cloud-first mobile applications that not only just store their data on the cloud, but also rely on it for its computational needs.
