2013 IEICE transactions on information and systems  
A virtual machine (VM) migration is useful for improving flexibility and maintainability in cloud computing environments.  ...  However, VM monitor (VMM)-bypass I/O technologies, including PCI passthrough and SR-IOV, in which the overhead of I/O virtualization can be significantly reduced, make VM migration impossible.  ...  Some para-virtualized Infiniband drivers for Xen and VMWare ESXi have been proposed [25] - [27] .  ...

Ignacio Cano, Lequn Chen, Pedro Fonseca, Tianqi Chen, Chern Cheah, Karan Gupta, Ramesh Chandra, Arvind Krishnamurthy
2018 arXiv   pre-print
However, users often statically configure the resources of virtual machines through guesswork, resulting in either insufficient resource allocations that hinder VM performance, or excessive allocations  ...  For instance, when compared to threshold and prediction-based baselines, it achieves more predictable VM-level performance and also reduces the amount of virtual CPUs and memory provisioned by up to 35%  ...  Acknowledgments Special thanks to Kevin Jamieson and Lalit Jain for their valuable and constructive feedback.

Towards Massive Consolidation in Data Centers with SEaMLESS

Andrea Segalini, Dino Lopez Pacheco, Quentin Jacquemart
2018 2018 18th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing (CCGRID)  
In Data Centers (DCs), an abundance of virtual machines (VMs) remain idle due to network services awaiting for incoming connections, or due to established-and-idling sessions.  ...  By replacing idle VMs with VNFs, SEaMLESS provides fast VM restoration upon user activity detection, thereby introducing limited impact on the Quality of Experience (QoE).  ...  For instance, while in QEMU/KVM the entire VM memory needs to be reloaded into the RAM memory before the VM is able to execute any instruction, VMWare ESXi adopts an approach called lazy restore, where  ...

Live Migration in Bare-metal Clouds

Takaaki Fukai, Takahiro Shinagawa, Kazuhiko Kato
2018 IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing  
In addition, the overhead of live migration mechanisms should be as low as possible. This paper introduces BLMVisor, a live migration scheme for bare-metal clouds.  ...  Unfortunately, live migration is not supported in bare-metal clouds, which lease physical machines rather than virtual machines to offer maximum hardware performance.  ...  Yushi Omote for his technical advice, and the reviewers for useful comments.  ...

Protecting Critical Files Using Target-Based Virtual Machine Introspection Approach

Dongyang ZHAN, Lin YE, Binxing FANG, Xiaojiang DU, Zhikai XU
2017 IEICE transactions on information and systems  
It is known that file operation is high-frequency, so operation-based methods often result in performance degradation seriously.  ...  Especially, the overhead is very low in the case of a few target files.  ...  Trend Micro Deep Security can leverage vShield Endpoint to scan on-access files in VM. To compare with it, we deploy vShield Endpoint on VMware ESXi 5.5 and VMware vCenter 5.5.  ...
