Finding the best way to map virtual machines (VMs) to physical machines (PMs) in a cloud data center is an important optimization problem, with significant impact on costs, performance, and energy consumption. In most situations, the computational capacity of PMs and the computational load of VMs are a vital aspect to consider in the VM-to-PM mapping. Previous work modeled computational capacity and load as one-dimensional quantities. However, today's PMs have multiple processor cores, all of… CONTINUE READING
