Abstract

In the era of cloud and mobile social computing, a plethora of mobile applications demand mobile stations (MSs) seamlessly interact with the cloud anyplace in a real-time fashion. The mobility characteristic may cause a service on MS to be migrated between different Data Centers (DC); otherwise, a packet delay is increased due to the fact that a considerable geographical distance between MS and serving DC. With a current networking architecture, IP address of either MS or virtual machine (VM) is changed because of the VM migration, and an IP session between two peers is released and the service is disrupted as a result. In this paper, we leverage the emerging Content Centric Networking (CCN) as a straightforward solution to these issues. Based on unique content name identification, instead of IP address, service migration can be continuous. Furthermore, a seamless service migration framework is proposed to conduct the user’s service request to the optimal DC, which satisfies user requirements, minimizes the network usage and ensures application Quality of Experience (QoE).
