Cloud

Towards an Elastic Application Model for Augmenting Computing Capabilities of Mobile Platforms

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper proposes a new elastic application model that enables the seamless and transparent use of cloud resources to augment the capability of resource-constrained mobile devices. The salient features of this model include the partition of a single application into multiple components called weblets, and a dynamic adaptation of weblet execution configuration. While a weblet can be platform independent (e.g., Java or .Net bytecode or Python script) or platform dependent (native code), its execution location is transparent - it can be run on a mobile device or migrated to the cloud, i.e., run on one or more nodes offered by an IaaS provider.
