In this paper, to deploy scientific application service among advanced computing applications to the mobile cloud environment, we integrate mobile cloud system with policy-based resource management providing SLA adaptive resource management called as mobile cloud broker. However, we do not use the conventional policy-based resource management because of some problems which cannot guarantee the performance of cloud resource required by user. To resolve this problem, we propose the policy based resource management for the mobile cloud system providing scientific application service to provide the cost efficient SLA adaptive resource management to guarantee SLA required by cloud service user while minimizing cost. We describe the function and architecture of mobile cloud broker and the proposed policy-based resource management scheme in the mobile cloud broker. In addition, we show that the proposed policy-based resource management guarantee the QoS of scientific application and reduces the cost compared to the conventional cloud broker system through the evaluation.
