Abstract

In Software-Defined Networking (SDN) enabled cloud data centers, live VM migration is a key technology to facilitate the resource management and fault tolerance. Despite many research focus on the network-aware live migration of VMs in cloud computing, some parameters that affect live migration performance are neglected to a large extent. Furthermore, while SDN provides more traffic routing flexibility, the latencies within the SDN directly affect the live migration performance. In this paper, we pinpoint the parameters from both system and network aspects affecting the performance of live migration in the environment with OpenStack platform, such as the static adjustment algorithm of live m..
