What is mobile cloud computing to begin with?
Defining mobile cloud computing is relatively an easier task, it is the sheer understanding of its concept and applications that is mind blowing to begin with. It is the cloud computing that is achieved with the help of mobile phones and accessed by the same too.
This combination of mobile and cloud service provides a stage wherein the major storing and data encapsulation tasks are completed with the cloud whereas the mobile phone only accesses them. The impact and reach of the cell phones is already immense to begin with, so the collaboration of mobiles with cloud computing and hosting doesn’t come as a surprise.
Some of the reasons which show that mobile cloud computing is the future of mobile technology:
1. More Battery Recharge Cycles
Considering som’e finicky cell-phone consumers (who are huge in number) the battery life is one of the key factors in deciding which model to buy and it’s here that mobile cloud computing comes to the rescue. As major processing is handled by the cloud, the cell-phone’s throughput increases thereby enhancing the battery life which in turn mak’es the most optimum use of the remaining recharge cycles.
2. Embellished Data Synchronization Facility
The mobile cloud computing makes a rigorous use of various synchronizing methods using the most recent features which aid significantly in numerous operations and in synchronizing the stored data as well as the cloud data, all in one neat place.
3. Enhanced Processing
The cost of a cell-phone depends a lot on its micro-processor’s speed. With mobile cloud computing, all the heavy processing is done at the cloud stage. Major computations, encryptions and protection, everything is handled by the cloud which in turn enhances the cell-phone’s overall performance.
4. Vast storage capacity
The immense amount of storage space, which is one of the USPs of the cloud service, is made available for the mobile phones. Instead of buying expensive memory cards for more space, one can simply utilize the service of cloud and feel proud in carrying all the information in just their hand.
5. Room for More!
Mobile cloud computing is adaptable with the new and improved technologies and hence, works most stunningly with the upgrades, be it in the cloud computing techniques or the handset’s changing features and design programming.
6. Enhanced User Expectations
After utilizing most of the above mentioned features, it is finally the consumer who experiences the most pleasure and contentment in taking advantage of the mobile cloud computing apart from the usual merits of the same.
7. Every Cent’s Worth
Consumers who normally feel betrayed after buying any new cell-phone model because they somehow do not find their money’s worth in it, this mobile cloud computing only comes as a blessing for them for the vast number of features, accessibility options and awesome performance, they would find every cent’s worth, if not actually feel that the model should have been priced a higher value.
Now the mobile manufacturers do not have to compete in the model designs and cost only but also in the cloud computing facilities and user friendliness. If this trend continues (which is most likely beholding its speed) it’s a no loss situation for everybody, be it the consumer or the manufacturer which in turn, will only chart the way for the glowing future of mobile cloud computing technology.
