Live VM migration is being widely utilized in virtualized data centers and clouds due to its capability of maintaining high system performance under dynamic workloads. Virtual Machine (VM) migration usually requires a considerable amount of system resources such as the network bandwidth. In the case of multiple simultaneous migrations, which happen regularly in data center operations, such resource demands will increase dramatically and are difficult to be satisfied immediately. In this paper, the authors propose a scheduling method for multiple VM migrations to guarantee the fast completion of those tasks and hence the reduced impacts on system performance.
