The use of mobile devices has exponentially expanded in recent years. A device which was made with the sole purpose of making mobile audio phone calls is now the leading basis for functionality in the social world. The types of applications widely vary from audio and video calls, internet browsing, healthcare applications, to mobile games with online connectivity, among many others. These applications have expanded the original idea of what a mobile device could be, however there have been constant drawbacks to these devices, namely short battery life and limited available storage memory. Another current issue that exists with mobile devices is the higher data consumption when on mobile network data. To solve this problem, it is possible to use cloud computing to mitigate these large applications and use less data. Integrating in a mobile cloud system to allocate and store these applications will allow for the mobile devices to conserve battery and memory by avoiding large computational processes. Another major concern is security breaches resulting in data theft and/or invasion of privacy. In this paper, we present a new framework that will allow for a smart load balancer to efficiently allocate resources to increase application processing speed for data and request response of memory stored by mobile devices in a secure manner.
