SNARF: A Social Networking-Inspired Accelerator Remoting Framework

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The diminishing size and battery requirements of mobile devices restrict the scope of computations possible on such devices and motivate approaches that support the selective offloading of computations to remote resources. With a variety of resources available to potentially host offloaded computations - such as cloud-provisioned resources, and devices within a user's personal or social network - a key challenge lies in architecting a framework that enables applications to seamlessly discover available services, effectively and securely communicate with them, and be presented with API interfaces that hide the complexities associated with managing the interactions with a remote device from applications and present the abstraction of a local device.
