Predictive VM Consolidation on Multiple Resources: Beyond Load Balancing

Effective consolidation of different applications on common resources is often akin to black art as application performance interference may result in unpredictable system and workload delays. In this paper, the authors consider the problem of fair load balancing on multiple servers within a virtualized data center setting. They especially focus on multi-tiered applications with different resource demands per tier and address the problem on how to best match each application tier on each resource, such that performance interference is minimized.
