As cloud computing environments become explosively popular, dealing with unpredictable changes, uncertainties, and disturbances in both systems and environments turns out to be one of the major challenges facing the concurrent computing industry. The author research goal is to dynamically manage resources and workloads for RDBMS in cloud computing environments in order to achieve "Better performance but lower cost", i.e., better service level compliance but lower consumption of virtualized computing resource(s). Now-a-days, although control theory offers a principled way to deal with the challenge based on feedback mechanisms, a controller is typically designed based on the system designer's domain knowledge and intuition instead of the behavior of the system being controlled.
