In the coming years, cloud environments will increasingly face energy saving issues. While consolidating the virtual machines running in a cloud is a well-accepted solution to reduce the energy consumption, ensuring the scalability of the consolidation service remains a challenging issue. In this paper, the authors propose an elastic consolidation service that scales according to the dynamic needs of the cloud environment. Their proposition is based on virtualizing the consolidation manager, partitioning the consolidation work and regulating the consolidation scalability through an autonomic control loop.
