With the tremendous growth of the portable computing devices and wireless communication, the mobile computing has become extremely popular. The wireless enabled portable computing devices with massive storage capacity and high-end processing capabilities have started to make the extensive use of mobile databases already. The rising popularity in these computing paradigms demands that the mobile computing be reliable enough to ensure the continuous data availability and integrity. However mobility comes at the cost of bandwidth, limited power, security and interference. In modern mobile computing systems data replication has been adopted as an efficient means to ensure the data availability and integrity as well as an effective means to achieve the fault tolerance. Data replication not only ensure the availability of the data but also reduce the communication cost, increase data sharing and increase the safety of the critical data. Furthermore, it also determine when and where (location) to place the replica of data, controlling the number of data replicas over a network for efficient utilization of the network resources. In this study we survey the research work in data replication for mobile computing. We reviewed some of the existing data replication techniques proposed by the research community for mobile computing environment for efficient management of data replicas.
