Server consolidation is important for better resource utilization and efficient energy saving for cloud datacenters which host thousands of virtual machines (VMs) to support multitenant applications. The typical approach is to migrate VMs and reallocate workload among different servers in a way to minimize the total number of servers used. However, most existing works for server consolidation focus mainly on how to reduce the number of active servers and do not account for the migration… CONTINUE READING
