Within datacenters, often multiple Virtual Machines (VMs) need to be live migrated simultaneously for various reasons such as maintenance, power savings, and load balancing. Such mass simultaneous live migration of multiple VMs can trigger large data transfers across the core network links and switches, and negatively affect the cluster-wide performance of network-bound applications. In this paper, the authors present a distributed system for Inter-Rack Live Migration (IRLM), i.e., parallel live migration of multiple VMs across racks.
