Elijah: Cloudlet Infrastructure for Mobile Computing
A cloudlet is a new architectural element that arises from the convergence of mobile computing and cloud computing. It represents the middle tier of a 3-tier hierarchy: mobile device - cloudlet - cloud. A cloudlet can be viewed as a "data center in a box" whose goal is to "bring the cloud closer".

This project is composed of two parts: Cloudlet and Cloud. The role of the Cloud part is periodically receiving heartbeats from cloudlets and return IP address of nearby cloudlets using the IP address of the querying client.
