VM handoff enables rapid and transparent placement changes to executing code in edge computing use cases where the safety and management attributes of VM encapsulation are important. This versatile primitive offers the functionality of classic live migration but is highly optimized for the edge. Over WAN bandwidths ranging from 5 to 25 Mbps, VM handoff migrates a running 8 GB VM in about a minute, with a downtime of a few tens of seconds. By dynamically adapting to varying network bandwidth and… Expand
Network-based VM Migration Architecture in Edge Computing
TLDR
The architecture and interfaces for network-based VM migration in an edge computing environment are defined based on 3-tiered network architecture to support various VM migration scenarios depending on network capability and stateful application. Expand
Teleportation of VM Disk Images Over WAN
TLDR
This paper proposes a novel technique, which is called teleportation, that assembles disk images directly at the destination from the pieces of other, unrelated disk images already present there and achieves 3.4x increase in network throughput. Expand
Edge Computing for Legacy Applications
TLDR
A new capability for legacy applications called edge-based virtual desktop infrastructure (EdgeVDI) is presented, and example use cases that it enables are discussed. Expand
Efficient Live Migration of Edge Services Leveraging Container Layered Storage
TLDR
An edge computing platform architecture which supports seamless migration of offloading services while also keeping the moving mobile user “in service” with its nearest edge server is proposed. Expand
Latency-aware joint virtual machine and policy consolidation for mobile edge computing
TLDR
The proposed PL-Edge can significantly reduces policy-flows end-to-end delay by nearly 45% while adhering strictly to the requirements of network policies. Expand
Virtualization and Migration at the Network Edge: An Overview
TLDR
This paper thoroughly reports both the state-of-the-art virtualization and migration techniques and their available implementations and investigates the aptness of such technologies for a specific layer of the Fog hierarchy, namely the network edge. Expand
eDisco: Discovering Edge Nodes Along the Path
TLDR
EDisco enables service providers and clients to discover edge servers, and determine the optimal edge deployment configuration, that leverages existing protocols and requires no modifications to deployed infrastructure. Expand
Server Placement and Selection for Edge Computing in the ePC
TLDR
It is shown that in some common cases the latency of the first aggregation stage dominates the end-to-end latency, and that common probing metrics can easily fail when used to select the service site for an application. Expand
Differentiated Service/Data Migration for Edge Services Leveraging Container Characteristics
TLDR
This paper proposes an edge computing platform architecture that supports service migration with different options of granularity (either entire service/data migration, or proactive application-aware data migration) across heterogeneous edge devices (either MEC-based servers or resource-poor Fog devices) that host virtualized resources (Docker Containers). Expand
Edge Computing Platforms and Protocols
TLDR
Edge computing is a new cloud paradigm which aims to bring existing cloud services and utilities near end users by utilizing compute resources in the vicinity of users and IoT sensors to reduce the network load on the cloud. Expand

Jettison: efficient idle desktop consolidation with partial VM migration
TLDR
Partial VM Migration is introduced, a technique that transparently migrates only the working set of an idle VM, and can deliver 85% to 104% of the energy savings of full VM migration, while using less than 10% as much network re- sources, and providing migration latencies that are two to three orders of magnitude smaller.

Adaptive Live VM Migration over a WAN: Modeling and Implementation
TLDR
A new metric called performance restoration agility is proposed, which considers both the downtime and VM speed degradation during the post-copy phase, to evaluate the migration process, and a profiling framework and a novel probabilistic prediction model are developed to adaptively find a predictably optimal combination of the memory and storage fractions to migrate.

VMTorrent: scalable P2P virtual machine streaming
TLDR
VMTORRENT introduces a novel combination of block prioritization, profile-based execution prefetch, on-demand fetch, and decoupling of VM image presentation from underlying data-stream that supports comparable execution time to that achieved using local disk. Expand
Difference engine
TLDR
Difference Engine is built, an extension to the Xen VMM, to support both subpage level sharing and full-page sharing and demonstrate substantial savings across VMs running disparate workloads (up to 65%). Expand
XvMotion: Unified Virtual Machine Migration over Long Distance
TLDR
Xv-Motion is a live migration system that integrates support for memory and storage migration over the local and wide area, robust to the variable storage and network performance encountered when migrating long distances across heterogeneous systems, while yielding reliability, migration times and downtimes similar to local migration.

TLDR
Enlightened post-copy is presented, a new mechanism for VMs under contention that evicts the target VM with fast execution transfer and short total duration, which resolves VM contention up to several times faster than live migration. Expand

TLDR
A virtual file system specifically optimized for virtual machine image storage based on a lazy transfer scheme coupled with object versioning that handles snapshotting transparently in a hypervisor-independent fashion is proposed, ensuring high portability for different configurations. Expand
