One of the most important goals of data-center management is to reduce cost through efficient use of resources. Virtualization techniques provide the opportunity of carving individual physical servers into multiple virtual containers that can be run and managed separately. A key challenge that comes with virtualization is the simultaneous on-demand provisioning of shared resources to virtual containers and the management of their capacities to meet service quality targets at the least cost… 

Two levels autonomic resource management in virtualized IaaS

QoS-Driven Cloud Resource Management through Fuzzy Model Predictive Control

A new resource management approach that can effectively capture the nonlinear behaviors in VM resource usages through fuzzy modeling and quickly adapt to the changes in the system through predictive control is proposed and substantially outperforms the traditional linear modeling based predictive control approach.

A two-level control system to manage the mappings of workloads to VMs and VMs to physical resources and an improved genetic algorithm with fuzzy multi-objective evaluation is proposed for efficiently searching the large solution space and conveniently combining possibly conflicting objectives.

A Robust Algorithm for Capacity Management to Improve Response Time in Virtualized Data Centers

To manage the capacity of these virtual data centers efficiently, it is proposed to do the scheduling of resources over the data centers to provide efficient capacity management and reduce communication overheads and minimize computational cost of the cloud.

Multi-Tiered On-Demand Resource Scheduling for VM-Based Data Center

A global re-source flowing algorithm in the multi-tiered resource scheduling scheme which preferentially ensures performance of some critical services by degrading of others to some extent when resource competition arises is presented.

On Dynamic Resource Provisioning for Consolidated Servers in Virtual Data Centers

A Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) feedback controller that dynamically allocates CPU for multi-tier server applications is presented, which means a fast response to sudden changes in CPU usage is achieved, which causes tiers to saturate.

Active CoordinaTion (ACT) - toward effectively managing virtualized multicore clouds

The experimental analysis of the ACT prototype, built for Xen-based platforms, uses industry-standard benchmarks to demonstrate ACT's ability to efficiently manage the aggregate platform resources according to the guest VMs' relative importance, for both the black-box and the VM-specific approach.

A Two-Tiered On-Demand Resource Allocation Mechanism for VM-Based Data Centers

It is argued that the existing techniques by turning on or off servers with the help of virtual machine (VM) migration is not enough and finding an optimized dynamic resource allocation method to solve the problem of on-demand resource provision for VMs is the key to improve the efficiency of data centers.

An Adaptive and Fuzzy Resource Management Approach in Cloud Computing

An adaptive and fuzzy resource management framework (AFRM) is proposed in which the last resource values of each virtual machine are gathered through the environment sensors and are sent to a fuzzy controller and AFRM analyzes the received information to make decision on how to reallocate the resources in each iteration of a self-adaptive control cycle.



Predictive Control for Dynamic Resource Allocation in Enterprise Data Centers

This paper studies the effect of prediction on dynamic resource allocation to virtualized servers running enterprise applications and presents predictive controllers using three different prediction algorithms based on a standard auto-regressive (AR) model, a combined ANOVA-AR model, as well as a multi-pulse (MP) model.

Adaptive entitlement control of resource containers on shared servers

By using the entitlement control system described, shared servers can potentially reach much higher resource utilization while meeting service level objectives for the hosted applications under changing operating conditions.

Model-Based Resource Provisioning in a Web Service Utility

A new approach to utility resource management focusing on coordinated provisioning of memory and storage resources is presented, which incorporates internal models of service behavior to predict the value of candidate resource allotments under changing load.

This paper presents a solution based on the use of analytic queuing network models combined with combinatorial search techniques to dynamically redeploy servers among the various AEs in order to optimize some global utility function.

Dynamic resource allocation for shared data centers using online measurements

A system architecture that combines online measurements with prediction and resource allocation techniques to react to changing workloads by dynamically varying the resource shares of applications and can handle nonlinearity in system behavior unlike some prior techniques.

Using fuzzy control to maximize profits in service level management

A profit-oriented feedback control system that automates the admission control decisions in a way that balances the loss of revenue due to rejected work against the penalties incurred if admitted work has excessive response times is proposed.

An analytical model for multi-tier internet services and its applications

This paper presents a model based on a network of queues, where the queues represent different tiers of the application, sufficiently general to capture the behavior of tiers with significantly different performance characteristics and application idiosyncrasies such as session-based workloads, concurrency limits, and caching at intermediate tiers.

Performance Guarantees for Web Server End-Systems: A Control-Theoretical Approach

This paper uses feedback control theory to achieve overload protection, performance guarantees, and service differentiation in the presence of load unpredictability, and shows that control-theoretic techniques offer a sound way of achieving desired performance in performance-critical Internet applications.

It is shown that in an instrumented Apache server, combining feedback control with a queueing model leads to better tracking of QoS specifications than with feedback control alone or queueing models based feed forward control alone.
