In recent years, mobile devices such as smart phones, tablets empowered with tremendous technological advancements. However, due to limited resources, mobile device leveraging cloud computing by augmenting compute-intensive applications to the cloud. In spite of several advantages, still this distant cloud appears with several limitations such as latency and communication delay. Hence, cloudlet is a viable solution to augment the mobile device task to the nearest small scale cloud known as cloudlet. However, this cloudlet resource is finite which in some point appear as resource scarcity problem. In this paper, we highlight the cloudlet resource scarcity impact on overall performance in the cloudlet for mobile cloud computing. First we highlight the basic idea of cloudlet, applications, importance with present limitations. In addition, for empirical analysis, we make some definitions, assumptions and research boundaries. Moreover, we experimentally examine the finite resource impact on cloudlet overall performance. By, empirical analysis, with the several graphs, we explicitly establish the research gap and present cloudlet finite resource problem in mobile cloud computing.
