An SMDP-Based Service Model for Interdomain Resource Allocation in Mobile Cloud Networks
Mobile cloud computing is a promising technique that shifts the data and computing service modules from individual devices to a geographically distributed cloud service architecture. A general mobile cloud computing system is comprised of multiple cloud domains, and each domain manages a portion of the cloud system resources, such as the Central Processing Unit, memory and storage, etc. How to efficiently manage the cloud resources across multiple cloud domains is critical for providing continuous mobile cloud services. In this paper, the authors propose a service decision making system for inter-domain service transfer to balance the computation loads among multiple cloud domains.
