Enhancing Survivability in Virtualized Data Centers: A Service-Aware Approach

In this paper, the authors propose a service-aware approach to enhance survivability in virtualized data centers. The idea is to create and maintain a Survivable Virtual Infrastructure (SVI) for each service or tenant, which includes Virtual Machines (VMs) hosting the corresponding application and their backup VMs. A fundamental problem is to determine how to map each SVI to a data center network with minimum operational costs while satisfying each VM's resource requirements and bandwidth demands between VMs before and after failures.
