Competitive analysis for service migration in VNets

Marcin Bienkowski, Anja Feldmann, Dan Jurca, Wolfang Kellerer, Gregor Schaffrath, Stefan Schmid, Joerg Widmer
2010 Proceedings of the second ACM SIGCOMM workshop on Virtualized infrastructure systems and architectures - VISA '10  
We study a system (e.g., a gaming application) where network virtualization is used to support thin client applications for mobile devices to improve their QoS.  ...  To deal with the dynamics of both the mobile clients as well as the ability to migrate services closer to the client location we advocate, in this paper, the use of competitive analysis.  ...  In order to focus on the main properties and trade-offs involved in the virtualization support of thin clients, we assume a simplified online framework for our formal analysis.  ...
