Abstract

This paper presents a framework of Mirroring Mobile Phone in the Clouds (MMPC) to speed up data/computing intensive applications on a mobile phone by taking full advantage of the super computing power of the clouds. An application on the mobile phone is dynamically partitioned in such a way that the heavy-weighted part is always running on a mirrored server in the clouds while the light-weighted part remains on the mobile phone. A performance improvement (an energy consumption reduction of 70% and a speed-up of 15x) is achieved at the cost of the communication overhead between the mobile phone and the clouds (to transfer the application codes and intermediate results) of a desired application. Our original contributions include a dynamic profiler and a dynamic partitioning algorithm compared with traditional approaches of either statically partitioning a mobile application or modifying a mobile application to support the required partitioning.
