InSite: QoE-Aware Video Delivery From Cloud Data Centers
The Internet is witnessing a rapid increase in video traffic. Due to the scalability and the cost-savings offered by cloud-computing, Internet video service providers are increasingly delivering their content from multi-tenant cloud data centers. One of the major challenges faced by such a video service provider is the management of the Quality-of-Experience (QoE) of the end-users in the presence of Variable Bit Rate (VBR) video flows, time varying network conditions in the Internet, and the bounded egress bandwidth provided by the data center. To this end, the authors present InSite, a light-weight and easy-to-deploy solution for managing the QoE of a set of video flows of a service provider, which are served from a datacenter.
