Service Image Placement for Thin Client in Mobile Cloud Computing
Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) is broadening the market for mobile devices with more and more variety and heavier services by using service images on cloud. With the limitation of battery life time, CPU and memory capacity, etc., mobile device cannot adapt with those new services. And remote display solution becomes the key technology to remove the barrier of those limitations in MCC. Due to the scalability, mobility of mobile devices, changing in resource demand or network condition, service images must be managed in the most efficient way. In this paper, the authors formulate the service image placement problem as an optimization problem by minimizing the cost function that is the combination of composite cost and resource demand.
