Abstract: Utilising mobile facilities with less energy and memory power is a major spotted research area. One of the techniques which resolve the problem is mobile offloading scheme. Various mobile offloading mechanisms are developed and analysed with the parameters energy, throughput, latency, security and deployment of application on virtual machines (VMs). Thus, the offloading mechanisms proved that mobile applications on cloud can save energy for mobile users through partition and migration of mobile applications. This paper has done detailed survey on various schemes of mobile offloading techniques that includes POMAC, cloudlet, and software defined networks (SDNs). The survey has been done on various procedures involved in mobile offloading schemes with the common similarities such as energy and cost optimisation, dynamic offloading and VM migration. This survey and analysis show that the cloud part in mobile offloading techniques need more attention for balancing the VMs and migration of applications dynamically towards energy and cost optimisation.
Keywords: mobile cloud; mobile offloading; cloudlet; POMAC; VM migration; energy optimisation.
