Auction Based Virtual Machine Live Migration Management

Wang Xu, Ni Hong, Guo Zhichuan

Abstract— In cloud computing, resources of datacenters are, instead of bought, rented as virtual machines (VMs). Typically, a cloud datacenter is consisted of hosts with different performance specifications. Assigning virtual machines on suitable hosts will greatly improve the overall performance as well as reduce the operating cost of a datacenter. This work proposes a set of heuristics for VM live migration and an auction based algorithm to solve VM management problems in datacenters. VM live migration technique enables a service to transfer from one host to another within imperceptible down-time, which minimize the performance impact to the service quality. By introducing market based auction process into resource management algorithm to guarantee fitness between VMs and resources. Experiments show auction based algorithm proposed in this work is efficient in allocating and managing VMs resources, minimizing number of migrations, and increasing the overall performance.
