Abstract:


Cloud computing is the newest technology which is very convenient for users as it provides limitless storage via network based upon pay-per-use. Besides it also provides other services such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). Cloud is very useful for institutions and organizations since it can be borderless, easily accessible from anywhere at anytime. Thus this technology is very beneficial to mobile learners as it helps eliminate problems of distance barrier and the access to the education in different geographical locations. Users can easily upload and download data in order to share to/from the centralized system via wireless network in real time. This paper will evaluate the performance of clouds for mobile learning based on cost-effective analysis. The analysis results that Google cloud outperforms comparable to other four clouds.
