Multimedia cloud, as a specific cloud paradigm, addresses how cloud can effectively process multimedia services and provide QoS provisioning for multimedia applications. There are two major challenges in multimedia cloud. The first challenge is the service response time in multimedia cloud, and the second challenge is the cost of cloud resources. In this paper, we optimize resource allocation for multimedia cloud based on queuing model. Specifically, we optimize the resource allocation in both single-class service case and multiple-class service case. In each case, we formulate and solve the response time minimization problem and resource cost minimization problem, respectively. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed optimal allocation scheme can optimally utilize the cloud resources to achieve a minimal mean response time or a minimal resource cost.
