Microcities: a Platform based on Microclouds for Neighborhood Services

The current datacenter-centralized architecture limits the cloud to the location of the datacenters, generally far from the user. This architecture collides with the latest trend of ubiquity of Cloud computing. Distance leads to increased utilization of the broadband Wide Area Network and poor user experience, especially for interactive applications. A semi-decentralized approach can provide a better Quality of Experience (QoE) in large urban populations in mobile cloud networks, by confining local traffic near the user while maintaining centralized characteristics, running on the users and network devices. In this paper, we propose a novel semi-decentralized cloud architecture based on microclouds. Microclouds are dynamically created and allow users to contribute resources from their computers, mobile and network devices to the cloud. Microclouds provide a dynamic and scalable system without an extra investment in infrastructure. We also provide a description of a realistic mobile cloud use case, and its adaptation to microclouds.
