In IaaS Cloud, different mapping relationships between virtual machines (VMs) and physical machines (PMs) cause different resource utilization, so how to place VMs on PMs to reduce energy consumption is becoming one of the major concerns for cloud providers. The existing VM scheduling schemes propose optimize PMs or network resources utilization, but few of them attempt to improve the energy efficiency of these two kinds of resources simultaneously. This paper proposes a VM scheduling scheme… CONTINUE READING
