Allocating Virtual Machine (VM) to an appropriate Physical Machine (PM) is important to enhance the performance of cloud computing environment. In this paper, the authors propose a dynamic resource allocation model based on the utilization level of PMs in data centers, and the location of user and data center on cloud computing environments. In addition, this paper also proposes resource management architecture to perform location-aware VM placement and dynamic resource utilization management. Through experimental simulations, the results show that the proposed model guarantees to allocate a VM to an appropriate PM that has proper utilization level for the data center, which is not affecting the performance of each allocated VM, and better response time of each VM due to close location to user.
