Title: RESOURCE MANAGEMENT FOR VIRTUAL MACHINES IN CLOUD COMPUTING SYSTEMS
Abstract:
A system receives a request to deploy a virtual machine on one of a plurality of nodes running a plurality of virtual machines in a cloud computing system. The system receives a predicted lifetime for the virtual machine and an indication of average lifetime of virtual machines running on each of the plurality of nodes. The system allocates the virtual machine to a first node when a first policy of collocating virtual machines with similar lifetimes on a node is adopted and the predicted lifetime is within a predetermined range of the average lifetime of virtual machines running on the first node. The system allocates the virtual machine to a second node when a second policy of collocating virtual machines with dissimilar lifetimes on a node is adopted and the predicted lifetime is not within the predetermined range of the average lifetime of virtual machines running on the second node.
