Abstract
This paper elaborates on the design and the comparative evaluation with other similar approaches, of a Cloud executable process-offloading scheme. The mobile devices gather through their communication and social context (“friend’s” available resources and bandwidth etc.), the related data, towards elaborating further and enabling the process of the execution offloading. The proposed scheme aims at prolonging the lifetime of the mobile devices, while at the same time, it aims at saving resources on the user’s device to maximize the efficiency in running context applications. The proposed social-aware scheme opportunistically exploits the resources of other socially- connected peers, in order to extend the capabilities of the mobile devices, by providing extra computing, storage resources, as well as the execution guarantee within a specified time frame. Comparative performance evaluations, in the presence of “critical-process executions”, as well as in the sense of meeting the required deadlines, were performed for the comparison with other similar schemes to prove the validity and the efficiency of the proposed framework, in contrast to the nodes’ lifetime extensibility.
