A Novel Approach for Optimized Multi Site Replica Placement in Mobile Grid
Due to the third-generation mobile networks and high bandwidth wireless networks, grid computing has moved from traditional parallel and distributed model to mobility-based model. This paradigm shift has given rise to in-creased use of mobile grid based applications and services. There are many related issues and challenges for mobile grids; one of the key challenges is effectively replicating the data over available nodes, which may be mobile. Especially in a mobile grid environment the data could be made available to mobile nodes, so that the time accessing the data and transferring the data is minimized during mobility.
