Abstract


Mobile device and Cloud Storage (CS) represent the trends of technology usage of the last few years. However, the difficulty in managing the data when there are too many simultaneous uses of cloud storage services at the same time that can cause latency or delayed time. This paper evaluates mobile cloud storage services using usability testing, which is intended to access by multiple of Cloud Storage Services (CSS) with the proposed Intelligent Mobile Web Pre-fetching of Cloud Storage Scheme (MOBICS). The results show most of the respondents with 95.65% agreeing that MOBICS system was very practical and has enhanced the speed in accessing and storing data by Mobile Cloud Storage (MCS). Besides, MOBICS reduces time of interaction up to 19.28% for the local pre-fetching and 18.80% for the intelligent pre-fetching.
