In lay man’s terms, cloud technology acts as a huge hard disc which stores an immense amount of data and information in it while at the same time behaves like a processing unit for it also enables the access, control and running of various applications or granting permissions from anywhere on the earth, irrespective of the fact if you have all that data stored in your personal computer or not. It’s so vast that it can store in itself all the major digital libraries, multitudes of encyclopedias and everything else.
Gone are the days when cell phones were manufactured and used for the sole purpose of making and receiving calls or sending and receiving text messages. With the recent advances in technology, cell phones have become the prime gadgets for they act as a device which provides a whole lot of other features, thereby eliminating the need of any other specific gadget. And this has been aided by the technological breakthrough, commonly known as Mobile Cloud Computing. Now what is this mobile cloud computing? We will answer just that and a lot more.
What is Mobile Cloud Computing?
The term is very much self-explanatory. Cloud computing achieved with the use of cell phones in not only accessing but for other features too. Such a service enables the access to various controls and permissions for any and every cellphone user, as long as he has been granted the requisite permissions. Some of the most significant advantages or benefits of this mobile cloud computing are as follows:
1. Vast capacity
The huge amount of space available at the cloud level makes it unnecessary for the end user to buy any memory discs or flash drives for their backups or direct storage needs. This not only provides the information and access to everything but also saves a lot of money for the user.
2. Enhanced performance
As the cell phone doesn’t have to store vast number of applications and lot of data, its micro-processor is free to devote its RAM to more pressing matters. This is turn results in an increase of the throughput for the processor and enhances the performance in an overall perspective. The phone now has to just access the cloud data and display to the user. All other back-end encryptions and processing tasks are done at the cloud tier.
3. Augments Cell Phone Battery
The above mentioned logic also implies here. The increase in the throughput of the cell’s micro-processor is directly related to the battery cycles and life as a whole. So higher the throughput, higher or rather more are the battery cycles as less battery is consumed per task accomplished by the cell phone.
4. User’s Contentment
The above mentioned features provide the end user with a great deal of satisfaction and pleasure in utilizing the cell phone as well as the cloud services. The combined facilities of mobile cloud computing result in a heightened user experience.
Now various cell phone companies are providing smartphones fully equipped with handling cloud computing tasks all because of the vast applications and needs of this collaborating technology. Analyzing the trend that’s going on, it is very certain that this mobile cloud computing and technology is here to stay, for the advantages and applications are too lucrative to let go.
