Live Migration-Based Resource Managers for Virtualized Environments: A Survey
Virtualization is a technology originally developed for mainframe computing. However, recent developments in the virtualization makes it a key technology to address the problems of modern distributed infrastructure like cloud platforms. Perhaps, one of the most important mechanisms provided by virtualization is the ability to migrate running applications without affecting the end user in a seamless manner. So, virtual machine migration is a promising approach to realize the objectives of efficient, adaptive and dynamic resource manager for virtualized environments.
