Mobile cloud computing is ready

Cloud computing and mobile Internet are seen as the future development trend, and a combination of both kinds of computing is mobile unlimited prospects, more and more giants have joined the field. The picture shows Apple CEO Steve Jobs WWDC 2011 posted on cloud storage service iCloud.

This type of computing has become the IT industry recognized core technology and development.

Gartner’s Cloud Computing as a 2011 top 10 strategic technologies of the first, that this style of computing will be 2 to 5 years to become mainstream. IDG also predicted the United States, 2013, this kind of computing will become a $ 44 billion global market, China’s cloud computing industry chain-scale up to 750 billion; as this kind of computing and the effective integration of mobile Internet, mobile cloud computing industry will reach one hundred billion scale.

“Cloud Magic will rewrite the mobile Internet, mobile Internet really take off will be more cloud-based application, when the terminals, applications, platforms, technologies and network speed after upgrading, there will be more applications and content with the magic of the emergence of global IT industry structure will change completely ushered in ‘mobile computing’ new feast. “in the 2011 Global Mobile Internet Conference, John Liu, vice president of Google is very optimistic about the global mobile cloud computing.

As John Liu said, including Microsoft, Google and China Mobile, etc., have turned to the industry giant is cloud computing, and cloud computing and mobile Internet with almost everyone and it was optimistic about the “future direction.”

June 6, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple CEO Steve Jobs brought to Apple’s “cloud”, released a cell phone online storage service “iCloud”, the solution allows an iPhone or iPad such as PC as easy to deal with electronic e-mail, notes the project, photos, etc., all made by the user are automatically updated to the iPad, iPhone and other Apple devices.

As a pioneer in this style of computing, Google introduced in late 2010, including the integration of mobile search, voice search, location search and mobile maps, Android’s Google Street View and other mobile devices based on new applications and this kind of computing.

Microsoft also introduced a “LiveMesh”, smart phone, Xbox, PC, or Apple Mac system together and other terminals, connected to each other via the Internet, allowing users of different devices and web content synchronization, and data stored in the “cloud”. The new Windows Phone operating system is also the main cloud concept.

In addition, RIM has a number of business users for BlackBerry enterprise application server program, which also has the characteristics of this style of computing for mobile Internet applications. The program will be enterprise applications, wireless networks and mobile terminals connected together, allowing users remote access server through the BlackBerry devices to access their e-mail accounts, online access to mail, calendar, view attachments and address book, writing documentation.

In the Chinese market, more and more Chinese companies are joining the mobile computing competition. China Mobile launched a joint Chinese Academy of Sciences “big cloud Plan”, China Telecom issued a “nebula plan”; and Yulong Cool mobile phone manufacturers have also introduced a “cool cloud Plan”, became the first mobile platform for this style of computing services. Mobile computing is coming.

IT era to new heights

Tencent Chairman Ma once said: “The value of cloud computing is to use public network infrastructure will be computing power, vast amounts of information, data storage and bandwidth resources like water and electricity into people’s daily life and work, people can like rent information with the same water, and cloud computing will allow mobile information ‘more fly’. ”

In recent years, GSM, WaveLAN, Wi-Fi and other mobile network technologies mature and commercialization, as well as the development of wireless terminal devices, to achieve a more high-end mobile applications are well prepared foundation.

On the other hand, due to the diversity of user demand, mobile Internet application server resources must be strong to do support. In a cloud computing platform support, SMEs developers from large service providers such as Google, Microsoft and China Telecom to provide public cloud computing can obtain the necessary resources. From an operational point of view, it also saves the cost of small and medium enterprises to build and maintain the hardware and software costs, allowing them to focus more on development and services.

For the terminal, cloud storage, cloud applications do not require too much computing power consumption of the terminal, terminal manufacturers, operators only need to coordinate and match the application requirements, users can easily get the required application.

So far, the development of mobile Internet of the three “King Kong” has been with – smart phones and tablet PCs provide an ideal terminal; mobile multimedia applications and the user needed content; and cloud computing to support content production and presentation technology platform – the mobile Internet can finally stand on top of the clouds.

At present, some mainstream OA, CRM and ERP and other areas of business are actively using cloud computing and mobile Internet technology, a combination of the wireless office, mobile management and wireless e-commerce into the mainstream, and this will become a new profit growth point.

Challenges and risks still exist

Of course, as an emerging technology, mobile cloud computing are still some problems with the short board, IT vendors need to improve and break through to the systematic, standardized the direction of the change.

First, the industry is a major concern of cloud computing is security. As companies expand into mobile phones and other mobile terminals, mobile cloud computing security issues will become increasingly prominent. Cloud computing infrastructure with a multi-tenant properties, manufacturers now can not ensure that A and B user data user data to achieve physical separation, the data is also stored in the wireless transmission of being intercepted, deciphered possible.

Second, the wireless business applications business model is not clear. Under the cloud computing movement as the most “money scene” of the application, to support the operation of its business model, credit system, payment system and other details are still a lack of standards and norms.

In addition, in the cloud, ownership of data, management is also a topic of growing concern.

“Mobile computing is not a Fairy cloud, not a matter of course. Cloud computing industry, from concept to widespread practical application of real and produce benefits, but also need time to warm up 3 to 5 years, strengthening the whole community needs to have a protracted war prepared. “Industry and Information Technology Department of Industrial Policy Division officials said.

Cloud computing is a mobile internet mobile technology combined with the product of cloud computing, cloud computing refers to the implementation up to the mobile terminal, enables companies or individuals through the mobile network to demand, and scalable way to obtain the required extensive infrastructure, platform, software (or application), is an economical and efficient delivery of IT resources and services and usage patterns.
