Abstract

Virtualization technology has been widely adopted in Cloud data centers for adaptive resource provisioning. With virtualization, multiple virtual machines (VMs) can be colocated on a single physical host to yield maximum efficiency. However, VMs which show high CPU utilization correlations to other co-located peers are more likely to trigger overloading incidents. This work provides an analysis on effects of correlation-based VM allocation criteria to Cloud data centers. The correlations among VMs' CPU utilizations are considered as parameters for decision making in VM allocation processes. Three different expressions of correlation-based criteria are introduced and evaluated in this work. According to our simulation results obtained from CloudSim with real-world workload traces, Cloud data centers with correlation-based allocation criteria can perform better in terms of reducing energy consumption and avoid committing Service Level Agreements violations than those with power-based criteria.
