The connotation of the cloud resources have been extended to be multi-scale resources, which includes central resources as presented by data center, edge resources as presented by Content Delivery Network (CDN) and end resources as presented by Peer-to-Peer (P2P). Under the development situation of the scale of the cloud services, it is difficult to provide services (e.g. streaming distribution) with guaranteed QoS only relying on single type of resource (e.g. central resources) to geo-distributed users. Therefore, making multi-resources cooperative to provide reliable services is necessary.
