Abstract

Optimal placement and selection of service instances in a distributed heterogeneous cloud is a complex trade-off between application requirements and resource capabilities that requires detailed information on the service, infrastructure constraints and the underlying IP network. In this article we first posit that from an analysis of a snapshot of today’s centralized and regional data centre infrastructure, there is a sufficient number of candidate sites for deploying many services while meeting latency and bandwidth constraints. We then provide quantitative arguments why both network and hardware performance needs to be taken into account when selecting candidate sites to deploy a given service. Lastly, we propose a novel architectural solution for service-centric networking. The resulting system exploits the availability of fine-grained execution nodes across the Internet and uses knowledge of available computational and network resources for deploying, replicating and selecting instances to optimize Quality of Experience for a wide range of services.
