Mobile Cloud Computing Services

Four reasons why mobile cloud computing is becoming more popular

Mobile cloud computing refers to the combination of mobile networks and cloud computing with an aim of benefiting the network operators, mobile users, and cloud providers. Usually it's a technology that leverages the elastic resources of network technologies and varied clouds toward unrestricted mobility and functionality. This enables mobile devices to be used anywhere without worrying about their location. Usually, cloud computing involve situations where data and tasks are kept on the Ethernet instead of on individual devices. On the other hand, mobile cloud computing involves other servers and mobile devices that are accessed via the Internet.

Facts About Mobile Cloud Computing

  1. Offloading Computation: Cloud computing is continuously gaining popularity and is currently seen as an alternative means for unified data storage. Additionally it's enhancing the offloading of computation and thus is an advantage for many business and companies. It also benefits numerous users by easing the computations that usually require other devices. The combined technologies are an advantage to both the software developers and the user of the products.
  2. Processing Speed and Data Storage: This technology makes use of near-infinite virtual space to store applications, software, and data. This is above in-house data storage, because in-house storage requires you to regularly purchase bigger hardware. Additionally, cloud computing has improved processing speeds in various gadgets. This is an edge over the earlier means as slower processing speeds lowered the capability of the devices. This has enabled a cut in the cost incurred in data storage and post purchase of faster devices.
  3. Ensures Security: Mobile cloud computing enhances security for your data and other related devices. Since the data is stored virtually, there are no cases of attacks from other companies that can access your personal hardware. Cloud computing provides a safe way in which one can send data without exposing the data to other people. Additionally, the data is safely stored in the hands of the mobile cloud computation technologies. The fact that all the data uploaded is encrypted and stored within the cloud makes the information safe. Mobile cloud computing ensures that the businesses continue even in cases of disaster since the data is not lost.
  4. Increased Battery Life and Productivity Boost: Mobile cloud computing technology saves battery usage as it increases the battery life since it's not overused. Similarly, the technology enhances productivity since there are limited chances of data loss as most of the data is stored virtually, reducing the chances of data loss. For example, employees are able to work efficiently since they have access to all the data they require at any time. At the same time increased battery life enhances efficiency in production since there are no cases where production fails due to lack of power supply.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.
