Virtual machine (VM) based virtual infrastructure has been adopted widely in cloud computing environment for elastic resource provisioning. Performing resource management using VMs, however, is a heavyweight task. In practice, we have identified two scenarios where VM based resource management is less feasible and less resource-efficient. In this paper, we propose a lightweight resource management model that is called Elastic Application Container (EAC). EAC is a virtual resource unit for…

TLDR
This paper proposes a lightweight approach to enable cost-effective elasticity for cloud applications that operates fine-grained scaling at the resource level itself (CPUs, memory, I/O, etc) in addition to VM-level scaling.

TLDR
This paper proposes a resource scheduling approach for the container virtualized cloud environments to reduce response time of customers' jobs and improve providers' resource utilization rate.
Improving Resource Utilisation in the Cloud Environment Using Multivariate Probabilistic Models
TLDR
This paper presents and evaluates a new algorithm for improving resource utilisation for cloud providers by using a multivariate probabilistic model and describes two heuristics metrics which can be used in the algorithm to capture the multi-dimensional characteristics of VMs and PMs.
Flexible and integrated resource management for IaaS cloud environments based on programmability
TLDR
A new concept of cloud management platform is introduced where resource management is made flexible by the addition of programmability to the core of the platform, and a simplified object-oriented API is introduced to enable administrators to write and run resource management programs to handle all kinds of resources from a single point.
Resource Scheduling Techniques in Cloud Computing Environment : A Survey
TLDR
Survey on Static and Dynamic Resource Provisioning Techniques is made, finding techniques used must meet Quality of Service (QoS) parameters like availability, throughput, response time, security, reliability etc., and thereby avoiding Service Level Agreement (SLA) violation.
TIMER-Cloud: Time-Sensitive VM Provisioning in Resource-Constrained Clouds
TLDR
TIMER-Cloud, a time-sensitive resource allocation and virtual machine provisioning framework that can outperform the state-of-the-art deadline oblivious scheme by serving up to 12 percent more user requests and achieving up to 8 percent more system rewards for the over-loaded scenario with 140 percent system load is proposed.
Resource ProvisioningTechniques in Cloud Computing Environment:A Survey
TLDR
A survey on Static and Dynamic Resource Provisioning Techniques is made and it is shown that resource provisioning techniques used must meet Quality of Service parameters like availability, throughput, response time, security, reliability etc.
Efficient Virtual Machine Placement with Energy Saving in Cloud Data Center
TLDR
This paper presents a self-organizing and multi-objective approach for autonomic consolidation of VMs in appropriate PM of cloud data centre which addresses different issues altogether such as maximum resource requirement during setup of V Ms, future demand of free resources at peak load, improving the performance and energy saving by keeping idle PMs at offline state.
