The rapid growth of communications and multimedia network services such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) have caused these networks to face a crisis in resources from two perspectives: 1. Lack of resources and, as a result, overload; 2. Redundancy of resources and, as a result, energy loss. Cloud computing allows the scale of resources to be reduced or increased on demand. Many of the gains obtained from the cloud computing come from resource sharing and virtualization technology. On the…
