cloud on title (cloud)

n. an actual or apparent outstanding claim on the title to real property. "Clouds" can include an old mortgage or deed of trust with no recording showing the secured debt was paid off, a failure to properly transfer all interests in the real property (such as mineral rights) to a former owner, a previous deed which was improperly written or signed, an unresolved legal debt or levy by a creditor or a taxing authority, or some other doubtful link in the chain of title. Often the "cloud" can be removed by a quiet title action, by finding a person to create or execute a document to prove a debt had been paid or corrected. Title companies will refuse to insure title to be transferred with a "cloud," or they will insure ownership except for ("insure around") the "cloud." (See: chain of title, quiet title action, mortgage, deed of trust, reconveyance, title, title report)

(4) The Cloudlet sends the results of the applications from the mobile devices to the clients.
Analyzing the results of the simulations, it's possible to identify the trust level of the virtual machines that performed the cloudlets. According to the reference information, a node trusts another from the value of trust T [greater than or equal to] 0.6.
To address the above issue, this paper proposes EACP-CA (Enhanced Adaptive Cloudlets Placement approach based on Covering Algorithm), a novel approach for cloudlets placement.
5.5 which shows the execution time of GA, MPSO, and PSO algorithms when using 10 virtual machines and various cloudlets, the proposed algorithm outperforms the current PSO and GA respectively.
Such developments suggest that the combined computing power may be sufficient when many mobile devices cooperate with each other in mobile cloudlets via wireless networks in a cooperative computation approach.
In this paper, we propose a cooperative caching framework which implements State based Content Distribution (SCD) algorithm based on DCSN architecture, where several distributed cloudlets with local caches cooperate and share contents with each other.

Use of cloudlets [9] to bring the content closer to the users is also gaining momentum.
The proposed streaming framework comprises a vehicular cloud, roadside cloudlets, and a central cloud.
To reduce such communication delay, cloudlets, which are some small mobile data centers deployed in WMAN, are introduced in the service framework of WMAN [6, 7].
The threshold is defined based on predictions to delay transfers in order to offload more data on WiFi while respecting the application's tolerance threshold cellular network to the cloudlets. In the system, cloudlets decide dynamically whether to access global or local cloud services based on the availability of the latter in their surrounding area and the load on the cellular network.
