As an elastic hosting platform, cloud computing has been attracting many attentions for transferring compute-intensive applications from static self-hosting to flexible cloud-based hosting. Distributed virtual environments (DVEs) which typically involve massive users interacting at the same time and feature significant workload dynamics either in spatial due to in-game user mobility or in temporal due to the fluctuating user population, potentially are suitable applications with cloud-based hosting because of the need of resource elasticity. We explore the dynamic resource management for cloud-based DVEs by taking into account their multilevel workload dynamics which differ them from other applications. Simulation results demonstrates the advantages of our developed methods over existing ones.
