Technology of local small clouds (cloudlet) is potential for strong growth. The ability of small cloud technology enables service providers, application offload compute, storage with superior features than ever. However, the combination of cloudlet with mobile networks data center in practice requires more technological solutions. In this paper, we are interested in solutions to coordinate the process offloading calculations for mobile devices, which reduces the computational requirements of the data center to the mobile network. This lowers the needs to consume energy of the data center. We propose an algorithm of cooperation among small clouds, addressing the above issues effectively. The experimental results confirm that our solutions can significantly reduce energy costs and enhance the system’s ability to meet and improve service quality required by the users.
