A Streaming Execution Method for Multi-services in Mobile Cloud Computing
Commercially available mobile devices with various kinds of hardware and software platforms have resulted in a huge amount of mobile services. This has a new challenge in designing multiple services that are compatible with heterogeneous devices and operating systems (OSes). This paper presents a method of multi-services mobile cloud computing (MSMCC) for mobile device, which regards OS as a service to improve user experience. A multi-services pre-boot firmware (MSPF) is designed to stream multi-OS images and multi-application images to the mobile devices over wireless network. After that, we use the MSMCC method to run on the S3C6410 board equipped with MSPF, results illustrated that MSPF is able to support remote boot and streaming execution of multi-services with stable performance.
