Abstract

Software Defined Networking (SDN) paradigm is introducing novel approaches for many unresolved issues of networking. These new outlooks are imperative in emerging scenarios where user requirements keep growing, the required bandwidth keeps increasing, and so does the variety of applications (e.g. Big data analytics) that suggest the network plays a more prominent role. As such, our research aims to provide a novel adaptive (self-tuning) resource management technique in SDN-based InterCloud environments. A quality of service (QoS) policy control framework is presented by modelling QoS-aware resource management as an adaptive control problem, and using principles in coalition games with externalities or partition form games (PFGs) as control mechanism. This on-going work outlines a proposed dynamic programming and anytime approach (Integer partition based) to solve the multi-criteria optimisation problem of a Markov decision process (MDP) model for system dynamics in SDN-based InterClouds.
