Survivable Virtual Infrastructure Mapping in Virtualized Data Centers

In a virtualized data center, survivability can be enhanced by creating redundant VMs as backup for VMs such that after VM or server failures, affected services can be quickly switched over to backup VMs. To enable flexible and efficient resource management, the authors propose to use a service-aware approach in which multiple correlated Virtual Machines (VMs) and their backups are grouped together to form a Survivable Virtual Infrastructure (SVI) for a service or a tenant. A fundamental problem in such a system is to determine how to map each SVI to a physical data center network such that operational costs are minimized subject to the constraints that each VM's resource requirements are met and bandwidth demands between VMs can be guaranteed before and after failures.
