Network virtualization [2] is an intriguing paradigm which loosens the ties between services and physical infrastructure. The gained flexibility promises faster innovations, enabling a more diverse Internet and ensuring coexistence of heterogeneous virtual network (VNet) architectures on top of a shared substrate. Moreover, the dynamic and demand driven allocation of resources may yield a “greener Internet” without sacrificing (or, in the presence of the corresponding migration technology: with… 
Online strategies for intra and inter provider service migration in virtual networks
TLDR
Both randomized and deterministic, gravity center based online algorithms are presented which achieve a good tradeoff between improved QoS and migration cost in the worst-case, both for service migration within an infrastructure provider as well as for networks supporting cross-provider migration.
