Given the constantly growing demand for live streaming services, live transcoding has become compulsory and very challenging. So far, investigations have been confined to satisfy a huge number of users for ensuring the Quality of Experience (QoE). The aim of this paper is to propose a framework architecture following ESTI-NFV (Network Function Virtualization) model, whereby the transcoding and streaming Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) would be running on top of multiple cloud domains. By respecting ESTI-NFV model, we ensure the flexibility of our virtual delivery platform that scales up/down and in/out relative to the changing demands of the end-users in order to reduce cost. For this purpose, this paper presents a new framework for managing the virtual live transcoding and streaming VNFs on top of multiple cloud domains for ensuring the QoE while reducing the cost. In order to develop such a framework, we have done a set of experimental benchmarking of transcoding and streaming VNFs using variant flavors (i.e., in terms of CPU and Memory resources). The obtained results will be explored later for developing an intelligent algorithm that will be integrated with the proposed framework in managing different transcoding and streaming VNFs in an efficient manner.
