CRESTED: A Mobile Cloud Architecture for Next Generation Social Applications

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper introduces CRESTED, a scalable architecture that is a hybrid of the recently proposed Computational REpresentational State Transfer (CREST) architecture and the Event-Driven Architecture (EDA). The CRESTED architecture supports a cloud-based middleware targeting next generation social applications. CRESTED-based systems filter user-aware content from social networking sites to mobile phones in near real-time by choosing eventually consistent data over guaranteed consistent data. CRESTED's middle-ware utilizes Cloud Computing's elasticity properties and popular social networking site APIs. CRESTED's client utilizes mobile phone capabilities and push services.
