Big organizations have large volumes of common data that are shared among its members. The use of private clouds for data storage using dedicated storage servers burdens the organizations with extra cost. The unused storage capacity of the participating users can be harnessed for storage purpose by forming P2P network without the aid of any centralized administration. With the advent of powerful mobile phones, tablets and laptops, even office work is now shifting on these mobile devices. We propose MDC (Mobile Data Cloud) for data distribution on mobile users using location-aware Chord-based overlay mechanism. Simulation results demonstrate that our proposed scheme outperforms the state-of-the-art Hb_Chord and WILCO prototypes in terms of query access time for all network sizes and query rates. The query failure is below 10% in both static and mobile environment for large network sizes of about 3000 m2 × 3000m2. The simulation results of the proposed protocol in dynamic environment validate the feasibility of data sharing among mobile users in a P2P mobile cloud.
