To support hundreds of thousands of players in massively multiplayer online games, a distributed client-server architecture is widely used in which multiple servers are deployed and each server handles a partition of the virtual world. Because of the unpredictable movements and interactions of avatars, the concentration of avatars in some regions of the(More)
Distributed virtual environments (DVEs) are distributed systems that allow multiple geographically distributed clients (users) to interact simultaneously in a computer-generated, shared virtual world. Applications of DVEs can be seen in many areas nowadays, such as online games, military simulations, collaborative designs, etc. To support large-scale DVEs(More)
Distributed Virtual Environments (DVEs), such as online games, military simulations, collaborative design, etc., are very popular nowadays. To support large-scale DVEs, a multi-server architecture is usually employed, and the virtual world is partitioned into multiple zones for load distribution. The client assignment problem arises when assigning the(More)
<i>High Level Architecture</i> (HLA)-based simulations employing optimistic synchronization allows federates to process event and to advance simulation time freely at the risk of over-optimistic execution and execution rollbacks. In this paper, an adaptive resource provisioning system is proposed to accelerate optimistic HLA-based simulations in <i>Virtual(More)
In Distributed Virtual Environments (DVEs), where many simultaneous human users interact with each other in a shared, 3D virtual world, enhancing interactivity is of crucial importance, since the success of a DVE greatly depends on users' perceptions. In general, enhancing interactivity for large-scale DVEs with thousands of geographically distributed users(More)
Recently, application service providers have been employing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds such as Amazon EC2 to scale their computing resources on-demand to adapt to dynamic workloads. Existing research has been focusing more on cloud resource scaling in batch processing, non latency-sensitive applications. In this paper, we consider the problem(More)
