Abstract

Vendor lock-in is a major obstacle for cloud users in performing multi-cloud deployment or inter-cloud migration, due to the lack of standardization. Current research efforts tackling the inter-cloud migration problem are commonly technology-oriented with significant performance overheads. Moreover, current studies do not provide adequate support for decision making such as why and when inter-cloud migration should take place. We propose the architecture and the problem formulation of a Multi-objective dYnamic MIgratioN Decision makER (MyMinder) framework that assists cloud users in achieving a stable QoS performance in the post-deployment phase by helping decide on actions to be taken as well as providing support to achieve such actions. Additionally, we demonstrate the migration capability of MyMinder by proposing an Automated Triggering Algorithm (ATA), which uses existing Docker Swarm technology for application migration.
