In this paper, we formulate configurable cloud-based VoIP call allocation problem as a special case of dynamic multi-objective bin-packing. We consider voice quality influenced by CPU stress, cost contributed by the number of billing hours for Virtual Machines (VMs) provisioning, and calls placed on hold due to under-provisioning resources. We distinguish call allocation strategies by the type and amount of information used for allocation: knowledge-free, utilization-aware, rental-aware, and loadaware. We propose and study a variety of strategies with static and dynamic policies of VM provisioning. To study realistic scenarios, we consider startup delays for VM provisioning, and three configurable parameters: utilization threshold, rental threshold, and prediction interval. They can be configured and dynamically adapted to cope with different objective preferences, workloads, and cloud properties. We conduct comprehensive simulation on the real workload of the MIXvoip company and show that the proposed strategies outperform ones currently in-use. [less ▲]

In this paper, we address cloud VoIP scheduling strategies to provide appropriate levels of quality of service to users, and cost to VoIP service providers. This bi-objective focus is reasonable and representative for real installations and applications. We conduct comprehensive simulation on real data of twenty three on-line non-clairvoyant scheduling strategies with fixed threshold of utilization to request VMs, and twenty strategies with dynamic prediction of the load. We show that our load-aware with predictions strategies outperform the known ones providing suitable quality of service and lower cost. The robustness of these strategies is also analyzed varying VM startup time delays to deal with realistic VoIP cloud environments. [less ▲]
