Given the proliferation and enhanced capabilities of mobile devices, their computational and storage resources can now be combined in a wireless cloud of nearby mobile devices, a mobile edge-cloud. These clouds are of particular interest in low connectivity scenarios, e.g., sporting events and dis- aster scenarios. In these dynamic clouds it is necessary to reliably disseminate and share data, and also to offload data processing computations to other devices in the edge-cloud. We are particularly interested in supporting storage services in these new type of edge-clouds, as a mean to enable data sharing, dissemination and querying, as well as to serve as a distributed file system for offloaded computations. In this Ph.D. thesis, we propose to address these questions by re- searching on the usage of ad-hoc clouds of mobile devices to develop an efficient storage service capable of providing high availability and reliability.
