In recent years, technical challenges are emerging on how to efficiently distribute the rapid growing User-Generated Contents (UGCs) with long-tailed nature. To address this issue, the authors have previously proposed Cloud Centric Media Network (CCMN) for cost-efficient UGCs delivery. In this paper, they further study the content placement problem in CCMN. Their paper is to minimize the monetary cost incurred by using cloud resources to orchestrate an elastic and global Content Delivery Network (CDN) service.
