A Review of Virtual Machine Allocation and Migration Techniques in Cloud Computing
Efficacious allocation of virtual machine (VM) and their migration contributes significantly in optimal amalgamation of servers. Virtual machine allocation is in fact allotment of collection of support systems known as virtual machines to the structure of tangible devices hosts or the physical machines positioned in the datacenter. This paper surveys the intended techniques suggested by the different authors for allocation and migration of virtual machine to render an energy efficient cloud computing. The core purpose of this survey is to explore and review the various techniques for VM allocation and migration for energy efficient data center architecture.
