Interconnection Contracts between Service and Content Provider with Partial Cloud Migration
This paper addresses interconnection contracts in content provisioning scheme with partial cloud migration. Model for traffic workload of such scheme based on content popularity factor is introduced. Monte Carlo simulation for bandwidth demand estimation is used. Cost analysis of content provider’s resources utilization regarding average requests’ rejection rate is observed. The performance analysis of content provider’s incentive for partial cloud migration is applied. Three interconnection contracts are analysed: Revenue Sharing, Cost Sharing and Wholesale Price contract. Obtained results show that partial cloud migration can reduce both content provider’s costs and average requests’ rejection rate. Under observed constellation, Revenue Sharing contract may represent satisfying solution for both providers.
