In this paper, we propose an elastic open service gateway initiative (OSGi)-based pervasive cloud (OSGi-PC) infrastructure which can make use of both the cloud computing capabilities and the component flexibilities from OSGi. OSGi-PC provides flexible management of component migrations between small devices themselves and powerful nodes in between, which is remaining a critical challenge for enabling mobile clouds. We have evaluated the OSGi-PC in terms of performance for adaptive service provision, and power consumption during service adaptation, performance and power consumption for component migrations in different scenarios,which show the usability of OSGi-PC.
