Mobile Cloud Computing is a term that refers to a structure in which both data storage and processing take place outside the mobile device from which the application is launched. For the average consumer, a mobile application in the cloud has the same visual appearance than any other acquired or downloaded feature through a mobile device application store such as the iTunes. However, the application works from the cloud, not the device itself. There are already several mobile applications well known in the mobile cloud computing, including Google’s Gmail and Google Voice for iPhone. To deliver them via shortcuts Home screen of the iPhone, these applications work just like any other, but all the processing power resides in the cloud.
In the future there will be even more applications like these, but not necessarily Web sites tailored to the cart, like those offered by Google. Mobile cloud computing applications are ideally suited to present itself that can be sold along with the traditional mobile app stores.
During the last decade, but especially in the last three years, there has been producing the convergence of 2 technologies: computing via cloud services as well as mobile devices, especially referring to smart-phones and tablets, producing a new computing paradigm: mobile cloud computing, in which data storage services are being provided by the cloud through mobile devices. An expert consultant predicts that the Internet business through the mobile cloud computing exceeded by a factor of 10 current fixed terminal-based applications and connect to thousands of millions of smart-phones over wireless networks.
The mobile cloud computing is a new concept that will revolutionize the business world in the coming years. Its purpose is to outsource the entire process of computing and storage of personal computers, allowing for faster times and optimize intra-company resources.
The idea of mobile cloud computing is to make the mobile devices more than mere intermediaries between the cloud and the end user, which have significant advantages, most notably the fact that the devices required for working with mobile cloud computing only need connection to the network. Mobile devices are the main beneficiaries of cloud computing.
How does the cloud work with mobile technology?
There are two major trends, one that has to do with cloud computing and the other has to do with mobile computing. These two trends intersect in the use of applications, e.g. smartphones, Facebook used but is in the cloud. The phone uses elements of the cloud, and we have computing devices, then we must manage these relationships between mobile and cloud computing. In the past it was difficult to deal with the phones because the applications were on the device: you changed the phone and you have to move out all the applications. This meant that a person id tied up with a device. This may lead to the problem of the broken chain of mobile cloud computing because all the logic, intelligence, applications, data that is stored in the cloud is gone. The cloud allows mobile devices to run faster, because the logic is not in the device, but in the mobile cloud computing service.
