Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors have summarized the experiences in the process not only of generating workload profiles for resource provisioning but also in the process of enforcing resource profiles in real systems. The focus of the paper is put in the provisioning of resources for clusters of virtual machines running in large scale enterprise data centers. They have motivated the need for application profiles in such an environment, usually orchestrated by a management middleware that needs some kind of performance prediction mechanism even for long running batch jobs.
