Abstract

Cloud computing efficiency greatly depends on the efficiency of the virtual machines (VMs) placement strategy used. However, VM placement has remained one of the major challenging issues in cloud computing mainly because of the heterogeneity in both virtual and physical machines (PMs), the multidimensionality of the resources, and the increasing scale of the cloud data centers (CDCs). An inefficiency in VM placement strategy has a significant influence on the quality of service provided, the amount of energy consumed, and the running costs of the CDCs. To address these issues, in this article, we propose a greedy randomized VM placement (GRVMP) algorithm in a large-scale CDC with heterogeneo..
