Performance Evaluation of Video-on-Demand in Virtualized Environments: The Client Perspective
Virtualization is a key technology for data centres to implement infrastructure as a service as well as to achieve server consolidation and application colocation. Over the years performance of Virtual Machine (VM) monitors have improved. Thus, new services are being migrated to these environments. Latency sensitive applications however, are not considered t for Virtual environments due to high virtualization overhead and potential interference from other VMs. In this paper, the authors performed measurement-based analysis of the performance impact on VOD server in presence of I/O bound workloads in co-located virtual machines.
