Energy-Optimal Mobile Application Execution: Taming Resource-Poor Mobile Devices With Cloud Clones
Source: Nanyang Technological University
In this paper, the authors propose to leverage cloud computing to tame resource-poor mobile devices. Specifically, mobile applications can be executed in the mobile device (known as mobile execution) or offloaded to the cloud clone for execution (known as cloud execution), with an objective to conserve energy for mobile device. The energy-optimal execution policy is obtained by solving two constrained optimization problems, i.e., how to optimally configure the clock frequency to complete CPU cycles for mobile execution, and how to optimally schedule the data transmission for cloud execution in order to achieve the minimal energy within time delay.
