Ad hoc network and cloud computing are emerging technologies and so is the emerging concept derived from these technologies named as ad hoc cloud. All these concepts are discussed in this paper, and ad hoc cloud network is implemented using two scenarios, each with different ad hoc network protocol, namely, Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) and Geographic Routing Protocol (GRP). OPNET Modeler 14.5 is used for the simulation model. In this simulation model, implementation of multi-hop ad hoc network is done with cloud servers using services such as HTTP, FTP, email, print, and database. The performance of the ad hoc cloud network using these two protocols is observed and compared. Based on these observations, results and comparison GPR perform better than OLSR.
