Agent-Based Service Migration Framework in Hybrid Cloud
With the advance of cloud computing, hybrid cloud that integrate private and public cloud is increasingly becoming an important research issue. Migrating cloud applications from a busy host to an idle host needs an efficient way to guarantee the performance in the geographical heterogeneous cloud environment. This paper we propose an automatic, intelligent service migration framework on a hybrid cloud based on agent technology. We build a prototype that integrated our private cloud with public cloud. In the prototype, mobile agent technique is exploited to manage all resources, monitor system behaviour, and negotiate all actions in the hybrid cloud, in order to achieve automatic, intelligent service migration between the clouds. We demonstrate the service migration mechanism on Hadoop platform between our platform and ITRI's public cloud.
