Increased power usage and network performance variation due to best-effort bandwidth sharing significantly affect tenancy cost, cloud adoption, and data center efficiencies. In this paper, we propose a novel time-aware request model which enables tenants to specify an estimated required time-duration, in addition to their required server resources for Virtual Machines (VMs) and network bandwidth for their communication. We investigate the VM-placement and routing problem, which allocates both… CONTINUE READING
