Abstract: The software-defined space-air-ground integrated network (SAGIN) is regarded as future-generation networking solution due to its wide-area coverage and seamless communication support for ground networks and resource-intensive application support for space-air networks. The SDN-based literary works are restricted only to resource management for space-air or ground networks, not both. The resource scheduling for multi-users caching, computing and data-transfer task accomplishment over software-defined SAGIN were out of their investigations by taking proactive local SDN, heterogenous users and applications, SLA requirements, priority, latency, and users' budget into account. To outperform the problems, this paper advocates a proactive SDN-based resource management scheme considering SLA requirements, latency, priority, and users' budget for multi-user task completion over software-defined SAGIN. This paper contributes an analytical model that covers task completion time, energy expenditure, financial cost, and SLA fulfilment metrics. The performance results illustrate that proposed scheme produces 72% time and 69% financial gain over the compared scheme.
