This paper presents a high-availability solution to a virtualized data center which consists of a cluster of physical servers and hosted virtual machines (VMs). VMs are typically generated through software called virtual machine monitor (VMM) running on physical servers. Both VMs and VMMs face the risks of software aging which are caused by aging-related bugs in the software and may result in failures in long time execution. To prevent such failures proactively, we propose a combined server… CONTINUE READING
