Abstract

Mobile applications are growing fast due to pervasive usage of mobile devices. With inherently limited on-device resources, plenty of research has been conducted on job partitioning/outsourcing strategies to execute mobile computing tasks on external sources, such as public clouds or nearby computers. However, little is known about the performance difference to mobile users on these external computing sources.
