Scholarcy highlights

  • Virtual machine consolidation in Cloud computing provides a great opportunity for energy saving
  • The obligation of providing suitable quality of service to end users leads to the necessity in dealing with energy-performance tradeoff
  • We propose a redesigned energy-aware heuristic framework for VM consolidation to achieve a better energy-performance tradeoff
  • We have evaluated our framework through simulation on large-scale experiments driven by workload traces from more than a thousand VMs, and the results show that our framework outperforms previous work
  • Thanks to Anton Beloglazov, who gives us a positive confirmation about the bug in the MinPower policy deployed in CloudSim
