This chapter presents a Efficient 3D Video Processing…?>dynamic cloud computing scheme for efficient resource migration and 3D media content processing in mobile computing environments. It elaborates on location and capacity issues to offload resources from mobile devices due to their processing limitations, towards efficiently manipulating 3D video content. The proposed scheme adopts a rack-based approach that enables cooperative migration for redundant resources to be offloaded towards facilitating 3D media content manipulation. The rack-based approach significantly reduces crash failures that lead all servers to become unavailable within a rack and enables mobile devices with limited processing capabilities to reproduce multimedia services at an acceptable level of quality of experience (QoE). The presented scheme is thoroughly evaluated through simulation tests, where the resource migration policy was used in the context of cloud rack failures for delay-bounded resource availability of mobile users.
