Virtual Location-Based Services: Merging the Physical and Virtual World

Christian Von Der Weth, Vinod Hegde, Manfred Hauswirth
2014 2014 IEEE International Conference on Web Services  
The presence of links between virtual locations and the corresponding physical locations (e.g., geo-location information of a restaurant linked to its website), allows for novel types of services and applications  ...  which constitute virtual location-based services (VLBS).  ...  In [21] , we merge both types of location-based services by connecting physical with virtual locations in an overarching model of "space".  ...

Virtual Location-Based Services: Merging the Physical and Virtual World [article]

Christian von der Weth, Vinod Hegde, Manfred Hauswirth
2013 arXiv   pre-print
The search and recommendation of nearby locations or places, and the navigation to a specific location are some of the most prominent location-based services.  ...  As a recent trend, virtual location-based services consider webpages or sites associated with a location as 'virtual locations' that online users can visit in spite of not being physically present at the  ...  In this paper, we show the usefulness for merging physical and virtual locations in order to develop novel virtual location-based services.  ...

Secure Service Virtualization in IoT by Dynamic Service Dependency Verification

Hajoon Ko, Jiong Jin, Sye Loong Keoh
2016 IEEE Internet of Things Journal  
IoT service virtualization is essential when a myriads of IoT devices can get on-line, interact with each other, exchange data and based on them create one's own service.  ...  Especially, when virtualization occurs across multiple externals domains, it's crucial for clients to verify the source of virtual services, i.e. whether they are built based on authentic original service  ...  An IoT device having access to the Internet can potentially interact with any other IoT devices in the world, exchange data with them, and thereby creating a customized virtual service for its own clients  ...

Towards a Service Framework for Remote Sales Support via Augmented Reality [chapter]

Ross Brown, Alistair Barros
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose the application of a combination of virtual worlds and augmented reality to create synthetic environments suitable for remote sales of physical artefacts, right in the home of the purchaser.  ...  This process involves a number of services that are often complex in nature, ranging from physical compatibility and configuration factors, to availability and credit services.  ...  The position of participants relative to each other is the same in real and the virtual world.  ...

An approach for virtual appliance distribution for service deployment

Gabor Kecskemeti, Gabor Terstyanszky, Peter Kacsuk, Zsolt Neméth
2011 Future generations computer systems  
The virtual machine instantiation process is highly dependent on the size and availability of the virtual appliance that is maintained by service developers.  ...  With the prototype implementation of the proposed algorithms we demonstrate the decomposition and appliance rebuilding algorithms on a complex web service.  ...  (example merge 1-2 ) and (iii) the original virtual appliance itself.  ...

Slice embedding solutions for distributed service architectures

Flavio Esposito, Ibrahim Matta, Vatche Ishakian
2013 ACM Computing Surveys  
Each virtual network is a collection of virtual nodes and virtual links that connect a subset of the underlying physical network resources.  ...  In this paper, we present the slice embedding problem and recent developments in the area. A slice is a set of virtual instances spanning a set of physical resources.  ...  This work was supported in part by the National Science Foundation under grants CNS-0963974, CCF-0820138, and CNS-0720604.  ...

Detection of Service Level Agreement (SLA) Violation in Memory Management in Virtual Machines

Xiongwei Xie, Weichao Wang, Tuanfa Qin
2015 2015 24th International Conference on Computer Communication and Networks (ICCCN)  
In cloud computing, quality of services is often enforced through Service Level Agreement (SLA) between end users and cloud providers.  ...  Specifically, we focus on unauthorized accesses to memory pages of a virtual machine and violation of the memory deduplication policies.  ...  We assume that the cloud service provider is not malicious but very curious. At the same time, he wants to squeeze as many virtual machines as possible into a single physical box.  ...
