Abstract

We are developing an advanced IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) datacenter management system that dynamically minimizes running physical servers depending on resource utilization. The management system periodically monitors the loading of a datacenter, and dynamically repacks virtual machines (VMs) into optimal physical servers. Live migration of VMs and the standby mode of physical servers are automatically orchestrated by a genetic algorithm (GA) engine. A preliminary experiment showed that our first prototype system correctly worked for a proof-of-concept datacenter.
