An Infrastructure as a Service for Mobile Ad-hoc Cloud
In this era of growing mobile device technology, the direction of growth is moving towards providing powerful computational capabilities and expanding memory in the device. Nevertheless, this growth has objectively put a lot of the device computational power to an unused state which calls for a better management of intra-device resources. Over a period of time, it has been studied that a mobile ‚??edge-cloud‚?? formed by these devices could be as productive or close to the productivity of the public cloud in terms of providing a service. However, the ease of access to this pool of devices is much more arbitrary and based purely on the needs of the user. This could categorically be summed as the building block of a cloud built for providing an infrastructure for various services that can be processed with volunteer node participation. This representation of cloud formation to engender a constellation of devices in turn providing a service is the basis for the concept of Mobile Ad-hoc Cloud Computing. In this manuscript, an Infrastructure as a Service paradigm in Mobile Ad-hoc Cloud Computing is delineated. A novel architecture for discovering a dedicated pool of devices and the dependencies it should satisfy while formation of this pool for computation is designed. Moreover, a peer-topeer composition algorithm to form this dedicated resource pool is proposed.
