A Framework for Data Center Scale Dynamic Resource Allocation Algorithms
The scale and complexity of online applications and e-business infrastructures has led service providers to rely on the capabilities of large-scale hosting platforms, i.e., data centers. Dynamic Resource Allocation (DRA) algorithms have been shown to allow server resource allocation to be matched with application workload, which can improve server resource utilisation and drive down costs for service providers. However, research on DRA algorithms has almost exclusively focused on their performance characteristics at small-scale, precluding their useful application in commercial hosting environments, such as those dedicated to supporting cloud computing.
