Hi, I'm the first author of the TPDS paper of VMThunder. Based on the same techniques and architecture of VMThunder, we have given a new live migration method. As the same as VMThunder, this new live migration method is a storage level solution and can support several kinds of popular hypervisor without modifying them. Technically, this method is a pre-copy and post-copy hybrid method and based on a previous work of ours, which is a live storage migration. (DLSM: Decoupled Live Storage Migration with Distributed Device Mapper Storage. *accepted by t**he 8th IEEE International Symposium on Service-Oriented System Engineering (SOSE)*, Oxford, U.K. April, 2014.) We are now working on this method and preparing to post a new paper to one coming conference. In summary, I think that the architecture of VMThunder is a powerful platform that can support several popular IaaS features, like large scale provisioning, bulk data dissemination, live migration, live spawning, and etc. (VM cluster live spawning is also a current work of us that still under researching) Regards, Thank you! ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Brian Zhaoning Zhang PhD Cand.
