A Virtual Machine Migration Algorithm Based on Group Selection in Cloud Data Center

Abstract : Live migration of virtual machine (VM) is a promising technology that helps physical machines (PMs) adapt to load changes and guarantees Quality of Service (QoS) in cloud data center. Many individual-based VM migration studies ignore the association between VMs, resulting in high communication cost. Some research on multiple VMs migration migrates the VM group as a whole, which is likely to result in ineffective migration and increase the network burden. In this paper, a VM migration algorithm based on group selection (VMMAGS) is proposed, which takes into account the migration cost, communication cost, and VM heat to optimize migration performance. The appropriate VM groups are selected as migration options, and the optimal migration scheme is obtained according to the integration cost of partitions of selected VM groups. Extensive experiments show that our algorithm can effectively reduce the migration cost and communication cost, improve the system reliability compared with other related algorithms.
