The problem of Virtual Machine (VM) placement in a compute cloud infrastructure is well-studied in the literature. However, the majority of the existing works ignore the dynamic nature of the incoming stream of VM deployment requests that continuously arrive to the cloud provider infrastructure. In this paper, the authors provide a practical model of cloud placement management under a stream of requests and present a novel technique called Backward Speculative Placement (BSP) that projects the past demand behavior of a VM to a candidate target host.
