As more and more of our data is stored remotely, accessing that data wherever and whenever it is needed is a critical concern. More concerning is managing the databanks and storage space necessary to enable cloud systems.

Resource Management of Mobile Cloud Computing Networks and Environments reports on the latest advances in the development of computationally intensive and cloud-based applications. Covering a wide range of problems, solutions, and perspectives, this book is a scholarly resource for specialists and end-users alike making use of the latest cloud technologies.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Anomaly Detection
  • Context awareness
  • Dependability Monitoring
  • Dynamic Resource Migration
  • Energy Conservation
  • Media Streaming
  • Mobile Cloud Offloading
  • Virtualization Methods

Reviews and Testimonials

International contributors present technical and scientific information on various aspects of mobile cloud computing. Section 1 provides an overview of mobile cloud computing and applications in areas such as anomaly detection in cloud environments. Section 2 looks at mobile cloud resource management, discussing topics such as a social-oriented mobile cloud scheme for optimal energy conservation. Section 3 addresses options for content-aware streaming in mobile cloud, with discussion of context-awareness in opportunistic mobile cloud computing, and adaptation of cloud resources and media streaming in mobile cloud networks for media delivery. The last section of the book deals with network and service virtualization, examining ubiquitous and adaptive web-based multimedia communications via the cloud, and a resource prediction engine for efficient multimedia services provision.
